Chicken egg basket


One of my friends brought me this sweet chicken.  She said it would look better in my kitchen than hers.  I don't know about that but I have come to love this little basket.  She is made completely of coiled wire with a red metal comb and waddle and a yellow wooden dowel for a beak.  Her top pops open to fill with eggs.  Certainly too cute to use for gathering but very pretty on the shelf.  Now I need to figure out how to blow eggs so I can fill her middle with the multi-colored gifts that my girls leave me everyday.  Thanks, Karen.  I really love the chicken egg basket.

  1. Love it! Somewhere I have a not-so-fancy wire hen. I need to find her now that I have chickens and eggs again. I blew out 6 of my little pullet eggs (so far). My jaws hurt afterwards from blowing so hard (ouch!).. lol.. but other than that, an easy process. I googled and tested a couple of methods. The best one for me was adding a little water once the holes are made and shaking up. It helped. -Tammy

  2. Thanks for the tip, Tammy. I tried but didn't get anything out. Thought I was going to have an athsma attack! I think I should try again with a bigger hole. I'll try the water too.

  4. You could always get wooden eggs, they wouldn't be as fragile and would be easy to dust and would look good too. Good luck with the blowing!

  5. What a sweet little basket...and what a sweet friend to give it to you!!

    Blowing eggs is quite easy, you just have to poke a teeny hole in either end with a pin and pop the yoke insoide with the pin by wiggling around a little bit through one of the holes.

    And then get blowing!!
