Project Chickens before the Eggs – Lesson 225 – You can lead a chick to a manger …

See this little clay chicken?

Picasso's clay chicken

One of my kids made it a few years ago when they were into that modeling clay stage. This was before we had chickens (hence the somewhat abstract quality you see in the shape.)

Guess where it’s going next year.

See this other chicken?

It’s made of gum paste (which can be eaten but who in our house is going to eat an adorable little chicken). We saved it off the cupcake not entirely sure what we were going to do with it.

Not to beat a dead horse but guess where it’s going to be found next year.

That’s right. Sometimes you can lead a chicken to a manger and you can make it stay.

Next year's chickens are going to stay put.
