I'm tired of doing the same old magic that everyone else does. I'm venturing out to new dimensions. Take the Silk to egg for example. How about this? " The hanky goes into my fist and gets smaller and smaller until it changes into a CHICKEN!" The secret is easy. Palm the chicken and shove the silk down his throat. I don't have a sucker explanation yet as I cannot find a chicken with a hole in his side that will fit into my pocket for a switch out. Any suggestions or other different new ideas for old tricks?

HI Rev bill,

I kind of agree with you about doing the same thing everyone else is doing.

however there is a reason we do it THEY WORK that is the the tricks work. I use several standard tricks along with some original ones but the key is to changing up the ROUTINE. that is where we separate the boys from the men.

anyway I wanted to chime in about the silk to egg routine beacasue my original routine with it involves producing a real live baby chick. instead of craking the egg on a class to show th e egg inside I crack it in my hand and have a real baby chick. I would ask that NO ONE else do this as It has been in my show for quite some time. its become a sort of trade mark for me and I love performing it especially when I am booked at magic conventions. I have a glass sitting on my table just to through off the magicians in the audience. as soon as I start the trick they think they know whats coming because they see the glass then Bang - baby chick gotcha, and I love it.

I only mention it as you wrote about a chicken although you were refering to a fake chicken which by the way I think is indeed really funny and you should do it but if you and others would be so kind to stay away from real baby chicks that would be mighty nice.

you can try a google search for fake baby chickens. or maybe get a rubber chicken they make a 7 inch version that you could roll it up and have it in your pocket to steal and shove the silk in and then show the chicken.

good luck

Why should eggs only turn to chickens. Lizards, snakes, birds, etc are also hatched from eggs. Instead of turning a silk into an egg, why not produce an egg from a silk and then crack open the egg and out comes a baby bird or rubber snakes, etc.

Good point there jamestong,

another idea is to jsut turn the silk into an egg and then crack the egg open to find the silk.

I have also produced a parakeet from an egg but when I came up with the chicken idea it was so much better for me as it fit my style and personality of my show.

I like the lizzard idea.

Bill,

That is a shame, I was looking forward to seeing your chicken scratch palm in action!

It was a particularly funny joke when people took it seriously. I was going to suggest you do it with a donkey as (1) it would be easier to get the donkey to swallow the silk and (2) the donkey would show up better on a stage, and (3) you could then just sit on your a ... er, laurels.

I used to have a routine with an egg made from a solid billet of steel. It weighed a ton... I would toss it into the air and say I could catch it on a plate without breaking the egg. Of course it shattered the plate. I did a switch for it following silk to egg.

Now, I really like that! Shattering the plate, what a great idea!

Mate any engineering shop can run one up for you if you give them a basic drawing (Scrap paper with an egg shaped oval on it)

or even a wood turner on his lathe will put one together in 5 minutes. Heck you could then use a very fine saw and cut the end off, drill out the centre and fill the drill holes with lead or nails or stuff heavier than wood. Have to use hardwood though as the impact on softwood will split it easily. You could even wrap it in wire for extra weight and strength but paint it into an easter pattern or plaster up the furrows between the wire with paintable silicone. this will give the exterior a little bit of protection also.

Hey you could even keep a hollow inside and if the end cap is on a spike hinge, you have a nice hidden chamber for "who knows what"

How about vanish a silk, produce a rubber chicken, reach into the chicken, pull out an egg and inside the egg is the silk? Or a lizard? Or a 6 pack of beer? Mmmmmmm.

SHAMELESS PLUG: Might I humbly suggest that you wear the Original Chick Magnet around your neck when performing these effects? You'll have to warn the spectators, of course, that they're in the presence of a chick magnet and anything can happen! Smile (www.sprainedangles.com).
Life is an improv. The game goes on...
