Looking for a chipper companion to perk up your space or a gift whose joyous, whimsical character keeps on giving? These bright-eyed, bushy-tailed cottonwood chickens with vibrant acrylic patterns and colors are carved by Edith and Guy John in Teec Nos Pos on the Navajo Nation in Arizona. Edith, daughter of Woody Herbert who was famous for his Brahma bulls and carved silver, has been working with cottonwood since 1990. Begun as a toy for the children of the family, the chickens made by Edith and her husband, along with other family members, have grown in popularity and provide a notable source of income for the family. Let a chicken into your life and soon you’ll want to pad your whole nest with more of all sizes and colors!
