Springtime chick

The evenings are slowly drawing out, and I saw on our local news last night that two lambs had been born yesterday at a farm somewhere in Yorkshire, so Spring must be on the way!
With that in mind here is my own offering for the approaching season - a newly hatched chick, resting in the base of her egg. The word 'spring' is stamped on the broken egg shell, and she is craning her neck and flapping her little hessian wings for attention!
The chick is made from Osnaburg, painted, sanded and stained with coffee for a Primitive look and a yummy smell.
'Spring' chick in eggshell £18
