Liam I thought of you when I saw this picture. These birds are recovering from some type of mis-treatment. The sweaters to kepp them warm while new feathers grow.....

back when i was a kid the white leghorn chickens were the best layers but they would peck each other to death if they saw blood. so they invented red eye shades for chickens and everything looked red. it fooled the chickens.

Please forgive me. When I saw the title of this thread, I was thinking more like a sweater you could eat. Like a chicken nugget

Hehe! This is great! My chickens have a minor problem like this. Some of the hens' rumps are getting their feathers plucked out (by other hens), so we have to put saddles on them. :)

Yeah my chickens peck out feathers of the others too, but mainly on the neck. . . maybe a chicken neck warmer thing should be made!
