    this is my little dutch bantam, Enid, modeling our adorable hand-made floral vest and clothesline costume. I made the close line band out of an old headband which i covered with shredded fake leaves to look like grass. then i used some Popsicle sticks and string to make the clothes line, and i made little shirts out of fabric. the mini laundry basket just adds to her look :)

    Hey everyone finished my entry not as good as I was hoping for ended up having to photograph and rangle the very irritated chicken myself. Lol.
    Note to self: measure the height of the chicken next time, poor Ginger was tripping over the legs. And I never did get the hat on her.
    These are the two best pictures of Ginger as a scarecrow. You might imagine that she wasn't thrilled. Next time I'll get help. [​IMG]

    Here I have added a photo of the costume not on Ginger so the details and hat(which would have to have been glued on her head to make it stay there) can be seen.

    I sewed all the items from scrap material and added the straw details myself. As can hopefully be seen from the photos I made overalls with a front pocket that has straw spilling out and a shirt with attached arms and hands. There is also straw out the bottom of the pants and the hat.

    The Chicken Swing

    Are you wondering if this thing is for real? We wondered the same thing, incredulous that chickens could actually enjoy swinging. We thought it was just a glorified roosting pole. We're happy to say that we were wrong! This thing is a revelation: chickens seem to love it. Take a look at the video at the site and decide for yourself!

    My inspiration was the bearded lady as a carnival or circus side show. My first ever chicken (well one of my first three) started as a yellow chick and developed a beautiful red head and beard. She's a barnyard mix of EE and production birds. My then two year old named her Reddy (because it rhymes with his nickname Freddy). She's in my avatar. Since starting laying August/September she's taken one day off from laying.
    I made a fancy dress and tiara by hand from scraps.
