Re: The cock

I like the hen best too, but they're both really nice. Do you put some kind of form inside them (like insulation foam perhaps?) to bend the wire around smoothly, then melt out the foam, or what? I've dealt with chicken wire (I've lived on farms most of my life) and it doesn't bend in "rounded" shapes all that easily, so I'm curious about your process. Keep up the good work!
