Preparation steps

1.
For the biscuits: heat the oven to 190°C (170° fan) 375°F gas 5. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
2.
Beat the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until light. Beat in the egg and lemon zest, a little at a time, until well combined.
3.
Stir in the flour until the mixture comes together as a dough. Roll out the dough out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 1cm|1/2". Using chicken cookie cutters, (or a template) cut out shapes and place on the baking tray.
4.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until pale golden. Cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
5.
For the icing: sift the icing sugar into a mixing bowl and beat in enough water to create a smooth, thick coating mixture. Place 1/4 of the mixture into a smaller bowl. Stir the yellow food colouring into the larger bowl and the orange colourin into the smaller bowl.
6.
Carefully spread the yellow icing onto the biscuits and leave to set.
7.
Spoon the orange icing into a small piping bag and pipe the 'feathers' and 'beaks' onto the biscuits. Attach the liquorice buttons for the 'eyes' with a dab of icing and leave to set.
