The Chicken Run: get in the race.

The next leg of the Oh Sew Tempting Chicken Run Giveaway Sort Of has begun.

If you want to be in the Winner’s Circle, avoid disqualification by following these RULES:

1. Agree to make another chicken and give it away on your blog within 4 weeks of receiving your prize. Include a link back to Oh Sew so that all the chickens can appear in the Chicken Run Gallery which will include a link to your blog if you have one.

2. Leave a reply below to say (a) what you would like to call the chicken pincushion pictured above; (b) which country she/he would be going to and (c) why she/he would feel at home there.

3. It is important to let Oh Sew Tempting know about every chicken that is hatched.

4. This giveaway is open to everyone in the whole wide world until the end of May 20, 2014 (local time) and will be drawn using a random generator.


I made two wonky log cabins. I used the same pattern directions (the sizes at least) from Granny Maud’s Girl site.

I left an opening in the bottom/belly to insert the stuffing. (Please do not stuff your giveaway chicken with foodstuff or plant material as it may not be allowed into the country you are sending to.)

I was inspired by the LOVEworks promoted by the Virginia is for Lovers tourist site. I blogged about it my previous post.

I took photos of this chicken at the Richmond International Raceway where they have a LOVEworks piece at the Front Stretch entrance:


LEAVE A REPLY, and this chicken could be yours.

    Oh yes, what a lovely chicken… I would like to call her “Sweet Virgin” because she is hatched in Virginia. She would travel to Essen, Germany, known for former coal mining and steel produktion and now the green city at the river Ruhr… But our hearts here are not as cold or as hard as steel – Big Martha and I felt in love with her at first sight.
    Kiss this little newborn goodnight… πŸ™‚

    LOVE her!!! I would call her “Love Dove”! She would join the coop and roost here in Central Montana, USA πŸ™‚ And while she may fear becoming a “sage hen”, I grew up in Williamsburg, VA, and would make her feel right at home…with help from the other biddies: Summer, Spring and Blanche πŸ™‚
