Wacky Little Birds - CU Charm Swap

Next weekend, I am attending Creative University and signed-up to participate in a Charm Swap.  Specifics included using the colors pink, green, white, and silver with a "springtime" theme to create a unique charm.  So, I found an un-opened package of Sculpey Clay in my craft room that was purchased years ago and decided to use it - even though I've never worked with clay before.  After scouring the internet and finding detailed instructions for a cute little bird, I finally had a plan.  My bird is not nearly as detailed, but it is only a half-inch tall.  

Well, the first bird was cute and fun to make.  But honestly, after working with teeny, tiny pieces of clay for four hours and creating 18 birds - they just look "goofy" to me!   Here is the flock of birds - fresh out of the oven. 

These three little guys have not been glazed yet.  So, do they just look wacky?
