A broody hen is going to hunker down wherever she can -- a walnut shell seems like a likely candidate, if you can find a walnut big enough -- or a chicken small enough!

Our "Chicken in a Walnut" ornaments are around 1.5 inches long and tall. Each chicken is needle felted out of wool over a pipe cleaner frame with stitched eyes. The current breed of choice is White Leghorn. Each chicken nests in a walnut shell half. Chickens are not removable, having been glued in place. A red and white baker's twine hanger completes the ornament.

We will choose ONE "Chicken in a Walnut" ornament in this style for you at the time of shipment. Please expect and allow for the small and delightful variations to be found in handmade items!


Our felted creations make great gifts. We are happy to ship to your gift recipient, with a gift message included. You can tell us all about it in "notes to seller" at purchase.


Our items do best when kept indoors, out of direct sunlight. Clean with a light feather duster or canned air, with spot cleaning at your discretion. Beware sticky fingers and pets!
