    I've had problems last year with my frizzle chickens getting too cold in the winter and dying! [​IMG] So this year, I'm more prepared! My frizzle "Razzles" is a runt anyway and she loves it when I cuddle her and keep her warm. So I found a pattern for a chicken sweater online and tah-dah! instant warmness! She actually didn't freak out when I put it on her. (unlike my other chickens in the past with chicken diapers!) now she's all cozy and warm! Bring on the coldness! [​IMG]

    Could we trouble you for a design template!?

    the design is actually too big for my frizzle, but all you have to do it basically cut out a rectangle. and instead of velcro, I used buttons.
