    Too much time on my hands

    A neighbor asked me to make a few sweater/coats for her chickens. I made them from polar fleece and added buttons to the back. So, do you think I might have too much time on my hands, that I would say yes to doing such a thing? See photos.

    When do you think the white coats will be here for me?

    One size fits all

    The jackets have three different settings so that they will fit just about every size. So, no fittings necessary. The man of the house was in charge of catching and installing the jackets and managed to catch only two of the chickens so far! :0 Isn't this the funniest thing?!!

    You might be on to something here. There just might be a market for these and you could get rich quick!

    This is soooooo funny. I might think you were kidding, if you hadn't showed us pictures of chickens wearing them.LOL
    Do they really make a difference to the hens? Does it keep them warmer?

    Looks as if plenty of animals out there are waiting for clothes. Orion says it's ok with him as long as he has not to wear a fair-isle sweater.

    Thank you for my morning laugh! That just cracked me up to no end

    I wouldn't say that you have too much time on your hands -- you just might have a million dollar idea instead!

    Google "Sweaters for Chickens". I was surprised.

    There is no such thing as "too much time on your hands" . Life is fairly short, do whatever you please as long as it's kind . The wee coats are lovely. I'd buy some if I had chickens! Adorable Carry on!

    Lock the doors and go hide in the closet cuz, THEY'RE COMING AFTER YOU!!!! While you're measuring them, try and find out the andser to the elusive "Which came first, the chicken or the egg" controversy.

    Is this for REAL???
