A Buff in the Box – Felt Chicken Ornament Pattern
This 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.
