6. Drill the appropriate holes. The holes for the wings are 2 mm and need to be drilled in the body and on the wings. The holes for the legs are 4 mm and need to drilled into the body and through the feet.
7. Use the wire and attach the wings to the body. Twist off the wire and coil the ends.
8. Glue the beak and sack onto the face. Draw 2 straight lines for the eyes using a fine permanent marker.
9. Glue the clothespin to the right backside of the chicken so that it opens on the edge.
