The flying chicken is one of my favorite fun projects I have attempted. Here are two links that will give you more information.http://www.vintagevogue.com/onlinestore/item6499.htm
I think these will describe them and where you can order kits.
My beloved Lynne - enjoys pin cushions and when I ran across this project I thought this might be perfect for her and they were so cute, then I thought for others also. I mean shoot, anybody who likes chickens and works with a needle , thread or scissors can always use something to keep up with your tools. As I started mixing and matching colors my little flock seemed to take on a life of their own.Then the beading project is like doing a different hair do for each little hen - not counting beading is what makes her little feet and each one turned out so unique. Talk about live and learn!
