One of my co-worker's is having a birthday this week.
In the summer, she rents chickens to have at her home. Yes, you heard me correctly. She rents chickens for the summer. Before her, I had never heard of such a thing.
The chickens enjoy a summer vacation away from their regular home, while having new pecking and egg laying grounds for the summer months. They arrive in the late spring - once the weather has had an opportunity to warm up - and head back "home" in the fall before the nights get too cold for them.
Well, I thought that maybe she was missing her summer chickens so I decided to make her very own Birthday Chick to help fill her lonely chicken-less winter.
PS. I added a little flower to tuck into the pocket. The stem is a trimmed down wooden kitchen-kabob stick and the button is one of my recycled bottle-cap buttons.
