Woolly jumpers for bald rescue hens :)

Recommended Posts

Mmm . . . publicity stunt methinks. In the early days of battery hen rescue, people just *shock* made sure that they had somewhere sheltered to go (i.e. their coop) and put them in a utility room or similar if it was really cold and - they were fine.

 

I know parrots don't do it, but chickens take great pleasure in taking dustbaths. Not only will it make it very difficult to bathe properly, the jumpers will get filthy. Not to mention that chickens will stand out in the rain (including ones that have always been kept free range - I can only imagine that ex-batts are worse) so the jumpers will get wet, heavy, cold and take ages to dry out.

 

They're not quite as great as they sound!
