My husband called my at work to tell me about the same chicken but I did not see it until now. I think it's pretty sad. I don't really understand the reason to do that to an animal. I wonder how much money was spent to come up with this. Probably could have paid several chicken plucker salaries.

Won't they get sunburned? They'd need to live on the coast somewhere where it is humid, warm but not too hot, and warmer winters....otherwise they need to live in the house!

Oh my gosh.....that poor little hen she was holding was trying to fly away! I didn't know whether to laugh or feel sorry for the poor bird! Those wings were just going like a little hummingbird!

is it normal for the combs of the roos supposed to be that big?
