What size dog harness would fit a Buff Orphington rooster?
I don't know what size but gotta ask...why do you want to put a harness on your rooster?
So I can take him over to the garden to eat grasshoppers and weeds and stuff like that... also maybe I might take him on a walk
I don't know about a dog harness, a cat one may work better. when I need to separate out my roo or a hen or two I use a rope put a loop over both wings that isn't tight or the knot tighten down. Can still flap wings. Usually forgot they are on a leash till they hit the end of rope.
I use this to allow them to be out for observation, treatment, or a chance to forage outside the run. They don't do so well being walked with it on. I usually use a long stick to herd a group of chickens.
If you manage to put a harness on your Buff Orpington, could you please post a pic and tell us how it worked out? I have two cats, one who walks well on a leash and the other just freezes up and keels over until I remove the harness. I've tried doing this with my pet rabbits as well, but they just managed to chew the harness off. I've come to the decision that the only pet I'll put into a harness is my dog. I'm curious if it will work on a chicken, but I can imagine they will freak out and hurt themselves, so be careful.
Pic hell, I want video!!
You're right! A video is much better. Could you upload a video of him, please.
Well, I couldn't wait for the OP to video:
Ok, I kind of want to try that now. I wonder how long it takes for the chicken to adjust to the harness?
I used to have an iguana that was about 3 feet long. I walked him on a leash. It was a great way to get him outside in the grass to nibble treats and he walked very well on it.
