I'd just like to thank everyone for their support and the views. My project on LEGO CUUSOO is nearing 500 supporters, a major milestone for me as, barring divine intervention, I didn't think I would reach that for months. Traffic to my blog peaked out at over 10,000 visitors in one day and I have received many messages expressing support, curiosity, suggestions, criticisms and pictures of other peoples' Minecraft Chickens.
That said, I am swamped currently in real life. I'm entering law school and I'm adjusting to a heavy workload as well as some other life changes. I would love to make a ghast/wolf/blaze/pig/sheep/cow and post instructions but right now I just don't have that much time. I will try this weekend to create one of these monsters and hopefully it turns out well. If that is successful I will try and post instructions soon afterwards.
Thank you all for your support once again. I hope to be back up again soon.
