A Sweater for Sienna

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

A dear family friend found a pattern for a knitted chicken sweater, and she made one for me.  Here is the beautiful, somewhat unwilling, Sienna modeling her creation.  The hole was supposed to be for her wings, but the chest section was too long, and she got her feet caught in it.  We flipped it over and made it a cape instead.  She was NOT thrilled when everybody ran over to see her new 'clothes'.  She chased the others away, then ran to hide in the coop.  LOL! 

Thank you Shari for giving us a really good laugh.  We love you!

After she hid in the coop, I tried the sweater the right way.  This is her giving me the evil eye.  Ha ha!

Cute, but no, she doesn't look to happy! Pretty sweater!

Don't get all your exercise leaping to conclusions!

Poultry- they may be your pets, they may be your hobby, they may be your livestock. But remember, if you fall down in the pen, unconscious? They WILL eat you.

She wasn't cold.  It was just something that we thought would be funny and cute.  I told my friend Shari that if she knit the sweater, I'd figure out a way to get it on one of my girls and send her a picture.  Sienna was surprisingly calm when I was pulling the sweater over he head and wrapping it around her.  She only wore it for about ten minutes, and it was obvious that she wasn't impressed.  The second picture was a position that she held for a couple of minutes.  She didn't move at all, and she gave me the evil eye the entire time.  LOL!

Apparently she wasn't too traumatized by it, because she was following me around the yard like normal later in the day.

Mother to the amazing crowing bantam wyandotte hen, a light sussex cockerel who was supposed to be buff, Buffy the buff sussex, 2 mixed-breed Freebie Sisters and Hermione...the best momma hen. Also 3 labradors, a cat, a show cob and a miniature shetland and the most wonderful daughter EVER

Actually the sweaters were designed specifically for retired battery hens.

There are lots of patterns out there, but this is the one that was used for our sweater:

Shari says "Due to the pink, green and white colorway of Sienna's sweater, I call it the 'Lily Pullet-zer' model, after Lily Pulitzer's Florida clothing line."  lol
