    I walk my chickens on leashes and where I live we often have VERY cold temps in the winter so I will put sweaters on my hens when temps are extreme. In other words, I treat them like purse dogs [​IMG]
    Who else on BYC does this too? what are your opinons on people who do this?

    Please tell me how you train your chickens to accept harnesses if you do the same too. so rude comments please

    I'm planning on getting harnesses for my girls and I love the idea of putting a sweater on them!
    Do you get any comments from people passing by? Right now I'm waiting for them to get full size...
