So glad to come across this tutorial. I have one of the chickens Doreen Speckman made - autographed no less. Thank you for giving her credit for first making these chickens. I think her daughter sold the pattern for a while after Doreen passed. She (Doreen) would have the biggest laugh at the "funky" chickens showing up everywhere! Can't wait to dig into my selvage stash and make up a couple of these.
