Guinea Fowl -- or my African Chickens

When Laura and I were at Discovery Cove in Orlando, we spent time in the Aviary and were introduced to some "Vulterine Guinea Fowl", which were described to us as being like an "African Chicken". I was so entranced by their colors and odd combination of blue-vulture head, bright blue peacock-like feathers, and what is nearly a brown fur around their heads that I decided to try to make some fabric versions.

This is a photo of the "Chicken Gallery" hanging on the wall to the basement. I will eventually get individual photos installed here. Until then, follow the link below to see the construction process.
