The colours are not those of any chicken I can remember - but I am no chicken expert! They are bright and attractive, so I went along with them.
In addition to the chicken, the apron has rows of off-set squares, under the chicken to represent (I presume) the ground, and along the hem of the apron for decoration. These proved very useful for using up the ends of thread from bits of the chicken.
I didn't much like the Craftways thread - some of it frayed and shredded - but I got by.
It made a good present.
