Can someone recommend a chicken walking harness for a 5-6 pound chicken?

    I purchased one on Amazon because reviews said it would fit a 5 pound chicken and the pictures showed 2 at least 3-4 pound chickens wearing it so i thought it would be ok. I tried it on my 6 pound girl, way too small. Tried it on a 2 pound chicken and even then it wouldn't fit.

    Maybe use a leash (tether) around the ankle instead? Some have been successful with that method. :fl

    I will take one next time I put it on her. Its for a 10 pound dog and its a little loose on her so I guess the 8 pound harness would have been better.

    We normally just use dog harnesses, they work equally well
