    In my layout I have a farm but I can not find any place to get chickens for it.
    Does anyone know where to find figures of chickens?
    If so please contact.

    pupparo - I was going to suggest doing bigger animals like cows and pigs, but caught myself just in time. Go to, their #s 75014 and 79093 are N-scale "small animal" figures from Preiser, including, it looks like, chickens! A N-scale chicken would be on the order of 1/16-in, I hope you're not talking Z-scale.

    Hi pupparo,
    Welcome to the gauge, Model Power also do small animals for HO & N-scale, you might like to try them also.

    Here's an idea... Preiser (among others) make chickens in HO scale. Get one of those N-scale nuclear power plant models from Con-Cor, and a set of those glow-in-the-dark Atomic Power Co-Op hoppers from Deluxe Innovations...and voila! Nuclear chickens!

    If you wanted to really get crazy, you could get something in a larger scale, like G.

    Just an idea... [​IMG]

    Well, I was only complaining tongue-in-cheek. I love a good pun!

    There once was a selfish king who loved to be entertained. One day, while touring his kingdom he saw a street mime. He loved the mime's performance and commanded that the mime come to the castle and perform his act.

    Well, the mime went to the castle and did his act and was a big success; so, king commanded him to come back the next evening. This went on for a while, and the mime never got paid for the performances. So, one evening the mime told the king that if he didn't pay him he would not come back the next night. The king had the mime imprisoned, and then forced him to perform each evening (and then returned him to his cell). After a while, the king got bored with the act and stopped calling on the mime to perform.

    The mime, however, was kept in his cell, where he eventually died without ever performing his act for anyone else.

    A mime is a terrible thing to waste.
