The Easter chickens are designed with their stand for a material thickness of 3 mm. Consequently perfect for the felt from the Mr Beam Shop. With the selection of colours it will be a pretty colourful bustle.
If you want to use thinner material, you have to customize the file to your needs, so that plug and stand are compatible again. The plug at the bottom of the body may only become as high as your material will be thick for the stand later. Otherwise, your chicken tips or stands wrong. And if your plug is narrower than the slot in the stand, they also tilt.
