I've got lots of chicken wire left over from building a run for my chucks, and am wondering what to do with it.
I'm thinking of making a square circle (I've got far more than I need), but does anyone else have any other ideas or use props made from chicken wire?

Great ideas folks. I do love the sword basket illusion, so I might try that.

Lyndel, do you atucally mean to use the live chicken? Or just make a 'run' for plywood chickens to 'hippity hop' in?

Kevin,

It was a joke. My feeble American attempt at humor apparently didn't translate well without seeing my sly grin and hearing the inflection in my voice. Smile

OK, for my pennance, here are some real ideas for you...

A piece of the wire might be used to pinch rolled up silks behind your table that you'll be producing later on for various needed effects. You'll need to tape it around the edges though to keep any silks from snagging.

What about a walking through chicken wire illusion - like walking through a mirror, but done with chicken wire? Could be some great comedy possibilities here... I envision one wearing a silly chicken costume or hat and doing the illusion to the "Chicken Dance" music.

How about using it to build a small transport cage for your rabbit or doves?

Good luck!

Thanks Lyndel,

I had assumed it was sarcasm (especially from someone with a Mark Twain signature!), but didn't want to miss out on a good idea by being too stupid to spot it.
The great thing about these forums is I feel no shame in saying "I may be being really stupid but.....".

Crazy thing but I quite like the idea of using it (in part) to create a minature farmyard stage to be able to perform perhaps a whole kids show with magic occuring on this toy farm.
Probably just another pipe dream though!!!!

Lyndel, I thought your Hippity Hop joke was funny. Smile
