Hmmm not real chickens - chickens on dishes - lots of chickens. I got my first chicken dishes in the 60s - from Sears. We lived in Alaska and had to order from the Sears catalog - then wait for two weeks, or four weeks - or sometimes a bit longer, depending on when the order was placed and when the barge left Seattle, and if the package had even made it to the barge. Then when the barge came in, we waited around until it was unloaded - then waited again for the post office to sort the letters, and then the packages - it was like christmas.
Over the years the chicken dishes got broken - until I had almost nothing left - then - I started finding them again - a few years ago I found some plates, 2 bowls and 2 mugs. Happy chicken dishes!
And recently I found MORE chicken dishes - I've got enough to feed the entire family when they come to visit - maybe we'll do brunch.
Brunch for two - on my new round table

Or turn it upside down and it is a juice cup - pretty clever, eh? The chicken is placed on each side so it can be used for either thing.
A nice mug for tea or coffee. . .
The creamer and sugar bowl are plain, but I fancied them up by putting them on a doily made by my good friend Franni - she does machine embroidery - go over and browse her lovely Etsy shop - HERE. Go ahead - I'll wait - look at all her lovely things.
Ok - back to the dishes . . .
I'm so happy to have my chicken dishes again - I have 10 plates - 6 cups - and assorted
other pieces - happy day.
