    We live in Ohio and are expecting a harsh winter. Can anyone tell us how to knit chicken socks? Please tell me if you noticed the Harry Potter Puppet Pals reference. [​IMG]

    I thought if you gave them socks, you were freeing them and giving them permission to leave.....[​IMG]

    Good grief...my daughter posted this under my user name and now I look like an idiot! Oh well. I have NO plans to put socks on my chickens, as adorable as that idea sounds in my head. Nor will they wear frilly dresses and top hats.

    Oh, and one of our hens is named Dobby, hence the "Dobby's sock" thread title. Time for my daughter to remember her password so she can post under her own name! LOL

    You know I looked earlier at this and I thought ''I'm staying out of this one.Too weird for me.''

    Glad you cleared it up. I've enjoyed the laugh for sure. [​IMG]

    OMG! You had me worried there for a second, LOL! I'm new to chickens & my first thought was, "How do you keep socks on a chicken?"

    Too funny...gotta love our kids. Found an email in my sent box to my sons teacher he had sent (he sends his spelling words in via email). I hope the teacher knows it wasn't me!
