Now there are Christmas themed, crocheted sweaters for chicken too!
Pet parents are storming stores and websites to buy festive clothing and accessories for their cats and dogs. But there haven't really been too many options for chicken! Guess we spoke too soon, Etsy shop Animal Fun and Fashion created a festive sweater your chicken can wear this Christmas. The sweater comes in Christmas colors, with Santa Claus buttons, and is completely crocheted. Buyers can pick from extra-small, small, medium, and large sizes as well. Put this on your chicken and it's going to be the cutest thing around.
You can order the chicken Christmas sweater from Etsy, where it is listed as a best-seller, for $14.99 to $18.45, depending on the size. “Received in the mail and so very pleased!” one buyer wrote. “These sweaters are adorable and I am sure my Silkie will look adorable in it!” I mean, this is a huge change from the fact that not many people focus on the needs of chicken, right? Cats and dogs are given more importance and that's quite unfair, isn't it?
The description for the sweater reads: "Do you have laying hens outside in the cold? Don't ruffle any feathers! Get those girls in a sweater to keep them happy and warm. Any color combination is possible. If you don't see the color you want, let me know in the notes when checking out." It also came with a: "**SAFETY ADVISORY** I have been advised that these sweaters may not be safe for chickens to wear constantly."
"They can interfere with molting, or their feet can become tangled in the yarn if the fit is not correct. Buyer holds all responsibility for the safety of their chickens." How about leaving a present under the Christmas tree for your chicken too? After all, a lot of our breakfasts, festivity foods and every other salad contains their eggs. It's time to make them feel warm and fuzzy inside, quite literally!
