Thanks Ambrose. I’m stalled out what with getting my garden in, I haven’t added the body to the neck yet. The garden is dug and lots planted but tomatoes and squash and warm weather crops yet to plant once the frosty mornings end. Looking forward to finishing this Chicken Guitar.

Excellent design and detail!

Thanks Doug, Uncle John, AGP. It makes good use of worn out gears. A nice discovery. I used marker MOP in the last chicken guitar. They were nice but these are more striking.

Clever and oooh so cool!

Cluckin' brilliant.  I saw a glimpse of the chicken in your video.

Thanks Ray. I haven’t made a guitar all Winter. I’m enjoying this one for sure.

 Gorgeous! There's some craftsmanship there! I love the imagination...
