These are 2 money box birds, a pigeon and a chicken, both made by Toby a couple of years ago. They are made from pint plastic milk bottles, covered with paper mache, and then painted and decorated. They have a slit cut in their backs where you insert the coins, and the screw on plastic bottle tops are on their bottoms, under their tail feathers, so you can retrieve the money when needed. They live on top of our piano, and we collect £1 coins in them, to save up for various things, previously a holiday, and now a shower room, (which Laurence is in the process of building at the moment).
