    Hi :) I was wondering if anyone knows how to make a chicken sweater. Is there a specific size chart I should go by to fit my Americanas. I do know how to knit a little bit, but I can only make small kitty blankets. So does anyone have a sewing pattern that makes chicken sweaters? Thanks!

    I did't know that chickens can actually wear sweaters, so after seeing the last post about them getting the sweaters on line, I went and googled chicken sweaters. It showed a bunch of pictures of very "well dressed" chickens in the cutest of sweaters! [​IMG]

    [​IMG]Aren't these ladies fetching? I showed this to my neighbor and she googled chicken sweaters and got a crochet pattern and made one for my Brahma Joycie. Joycie was having problems with getting her neck feathers stolen, and she altered the pattern to include a turtle neck.[​IMG]

    Is It the same to make a sweater for a rooster?
    My oldest Rooster Oswald is getting old and gets cold at night.
    but im pretty sure he doesnt like cotton, so is it possible to make one with suede?
