Looking for an Easy Chicken Hat Tutorial?Chickens: Rooster, Hen, Pullet, Cockerel or Cock. Whatever you call them, we're on a kick. Our baby chicks are six-weeks-old, and we adopted three duckling companions for them. We're still waiting to see if they turn out to be girls or boys. The waiting is the hardest part. Enjoy!

- Cut two, two inch strips down the length of the construction paper.
- Measure one strip band to child's head. Glue ends together.
- Now fold the other strip in half to form the chicken's beak.
- Bend in half until ends meet, glue together, and attach beak to hat band strip.
- Cut out the comb and wattle as pictured
- Paste wattle to beak, draw two black circles for nose holes. We cut out two paper "chicken combs" and glued to a piece of cardboard to make the comb stand tall.
- Score a slit in each end of the comb and slide into hat band. Ta da!
