Overview

In this lesson we’ll be crocheting a Chicken birb! I call these guys ‘Birbs’ because they’re secret agents disguised as different kind of birds! We’ll be learning how to make all the pieces of the chicken, including how to make it magnetic, and make it lay and egg!

To make your chicken lay eggs use the finger puppet method before Rnd 11! Find the tutorial at ClubCrochet.com/PUPPET

Stuff fully, add in a magnet before stuffing closed so that your pigeon can attach to anything metal!

To make your Pigeon “pooping“ use a long strand of white yarn with knots on both ends pulled through the Birbs body, through the head, and hidden under the fake head. Pull the end coming from the butt to make him poop!

    I got the chicken in the monthy kit ( I am a pro member and proud of it:)) and I absolutely loved it! Just the right amount of challenge for me, but wasn’t overwhelming. The video was very useful! Super cute, and now my chicken birb is spying on my family members

    Absolutely obsessed with this pattern!! I’ve already made three chickens today, and they’re so cute! I made one each for my brother and my girlfriend, and they both love them as much as I do! (The third one is for me. Lol!) I’d highly suggest swapping the colors for different browns and neutral colors, as it can make really fun and unique individual chickens! Thanks for the pattern, Louie!
