A Buff in the Box – Felt Chicken Ornament Pattern

nesting chickenThis little felt chicken ornament was inspired by our own Buff Orpington chickens. Often when we check for eggs, there’s a Buff in the Box – that is a Buff in the nesting box getting settling to lay an egg. We have 12 chickens, six nesting boxes, and they all like to use the same box. If you try to check under her for eggs she’ll repay your interruption with a cluck and a peck.

    Thanks for the pattern! It’s really cute! I’m teaching German to 6th graders and decided to make little felt animals for our lesson on animals. So I used your pattern to make der Hahn. :)

    Thank you for sharing this pattern! We just got our first chickens this year and I wanted to to commemorate it with an ornament. I posted pictures of it on my blog here: http://www.fraisesettartines.com/2012/11/felt-chicken-ornament.html Thanks again!
