Chickens are fun birds to look at and draw.  I made my first 3D chicken for an exhibition called ‘Life’.  A fellow artist had invited me to make a piece of work for his show so I decided on the title ‘What came first -  the chicken or the egg?  Not sure why or how it became so big!  The egg is covered in torn up ‘egg’ jokes of which I discovered there are plenty.  Having made my first chicken, I thought it needed a mate which turned out even bigger!  Since then I have made a smaller cockerel which will sit on a large windowsill.  They are made appropriately, with chicken wire, bits of wood, newspaper and kitchen roll, and lots of PVA.
