Just noticed that this was from 2009. I thought I'd answer it anyway. As a pack rat & artist (art studio major in college), I'm always making something, lol!
First, decide:
How much money you have or want to spend on materials. Can you get some materials for free? Can you recycle materials from other items?
How large is your display area? How large do you want your piece to be & how it is to be positioned (sitting, standing, hanging on a pole?)
Also, if you already have some of the materials you'll need (like the chicken wire), are you going to be restricted on the size if you do not plan to acquire more?
Measure, measure, then cut! For example, If you have decided to use an old pair of your hubby's bluejeans or overalls & he is 6' 4", that's two 34"-36" long pieces of chicken wire you'll need for each leg - what about the diameter of the legs at the thigh at about 30" - you can cut two straight pieces of wire 30"wx36"L & just roll the diameter tighter as you approach the ankles. All you really need is a body framework, as it will be covered by clothing. You can always alter the length of the pants or shirt sleeves by folding the cuffs up.
For a straight standing or hanging scarecrow, you could scrap the chicken wire idea all together & go with a traditional mop - attach a wire coat hanger (to make shoulders/have something to hang the shirt on) to the mop by inserting the "crook" part into the base of the mop head, or stapling or taping with duct tape, lay the clothing on floor, insert mop, put shirt onto hanger, stuff the clothing with hay or newspaper (then just have some hay sticking out under the hat, at the shirt cuffs, & at the feet). Tie with twine at wrists & ankles (maybe the waist, too if using jeans). Stuff the mop head into a burlap bag, tie down at neck, draw on facial features, make slits in bag & pull the "hair" though the slits - just enough to show if he/she will be wearing a hat.
You can make the entire body out of chicken wire & stuff with newspaper as you go (before connecting the body parts together).
Head - cover the chicken wire head with a burlap bag or any cloth that suits you & tie it at the neck with a piece of twine or ribbon.
Draw the facial features, then remove the cloth & lay flat so you can
fill in with color, either use paint or markers. Let dry.
For clothing, adult or kid size - If you don't have clothing you can use already, ask friends or family! Next, I would go to a Goodwill or dollar store. Straw hat (or other suitable type), plaid or solid long sleeve shirt, old work gloves, coveralls, overalls or bluejeans, could hang a bandana around the neck or out of a pocket. Feet or no feet? An old pair of work boots would be great.
Hope this helps someone!

How do I eat a moving chicken?

The question that you first must answer is: Why is the chicken moving? If the chicken is moving because the area that it lives in has a blight, there is not going to be much meat on that chicken. IF the chicken is moving because there is ground water contamination then the meat might not be good for you. If the chicken is moving to get a better job then it is in hard times and just like a blight, might be on the slim side. If the chicken is moving because the crime rate is high, you need to be careful when catching that chicken so that you don't get robbed yourself. If you loose your fine silverware to robbers, you wont be able to consume that chicken. If the chicken is moving across the road then you might want to check and see what political district that side of the road is in because you could upset the balance of political posturing by eating that chicken. As cocky as it sounds it might be better to leave that chicken alone HENse don't eat the chicken.

A woman has a fox chicken and a bag of grain she needs to get to the other side of a clif if she leaves the chicken with the grain the chicken will eat it. if she leaves the chicken with the fox the fox...

You neglected to add that she can take only one item with her.

She takes the chicken with her and leaves it on the other side. She comes back, takes the fox across with her, leaves the fox and brings the chicken back. Leaving the chicken, she takes the grain across and leaves it with the fox. She then comes back for the chicken and takes it across.

How to solve this problem in a different way,A FARM BOY TENDS PIGS AND CHICKENS IN THEIR YARD,hE COUNTED 21 HEADS AND 54 FEET. hOW MANY PIGS AND CHICkENs ARE THERE?pls.share me a strategy without using...

P = number of pigs

Then P is the number of pig-heads, and 4*P is the number of pigs-feet.

C = number of chickens

Then C is the number of chicken-heads, and 2*C is the number of chicken-feet.

Thus: 21 = P + C

Equivalently: 42 = 2*P + 2*C

Also: 54 = 4*P + 2*C

Thus (54-42) = 4*P + 2*C - 2*P - 2*C

Factoring: 12 = 2*P + ( 2*C - 2*C)

Reducing: 6 = P

Or, do it on graph-paper, with 'P' on the X-axis and 'C' on the Y-axis,
and each unit representing one animal (pig or chicken).

Draw one line between (0,21) and (21,0) (no pigs & 21 chickens, versus 21 pigs & 0 chickens)

Draw one line between (0,27) [no pigs and 27 pairs of chicken-feet]
and (13,1) [13 pigs have 52 feet, with 1 pair of chicken-feet]

The two lines cross at exactly one point on the graph, namely at the solution.

Rabbits and chickens

Let C = # of Chickens and R = # of Rabbits
Let CL = # of Chicken Legs and RL = # of Rabbit Legs
C + R = 52 (each chicken and each rabbit have a head)
R = 52 - C
CL = 2C (each chicken has 2 legs)
RL = 4R (each rabbit has 4 legs)

CL + RL = 148
2C + 4 (52 - C) = 148
-2C + 208 = 148
C = 30

R = 52 - C = 52 - 30
= 22

There are 30 chickens and 22 rabbits.

Birds in flu

Buy a small piece of chicken wire.
One additional piece of PVC pipe, and a coupling.

Cut the chicken wire the exact size of the outside diamiter of the pipe, place it on the end of the pipe and install the coupling over it.

The chicken wire "screen" will be help in place by the pipe wall, the internal ring on the coupling, and the PVC glue. Cut the pipe to the length you need and install it on the intake pipe outside the wall.

Search the internet for “roast chicken recipe for microwave”
Here is one just in case you don’t find one:
Microwave Roast Chicken
3 lbs. chicken
1 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tsp. paprika

Melt butter in a custard cup in microwave. Mix paprika into melted butter. Wash chicken (reserve giblets, these are best cooked conventionally). Sprinkle inside of chicken with salt. Cover ends of legs, tail, and wings with small pieces of saran wrap or wax paper. Place trivet on inverted saucer or small casserole lid in 12 x 7 inch baking dish. Place chicken breast side down on saucers. Brush with butter. Cover with waxed paper. Cook 12 minutes. Remove wax paper or saran warp from legs, tail, and wings. Turn chicken breast side up and brush with butter. Cover with wax paper and cook 12 minutes more or until meat thermometer registers 180 degrees (temperature will increase to 195 degrees during standing).

DO NOT USE MEAT THERMOMETER IN OVEN WHEN COOKING!! Remove chicken from oven; cover with aluminum foil and let stand 15 to 20 minutes before carving. Note: For other weights of chicken, allow 8 minutes cooking time per pound.
