    I'm pro things that is beneficial for the chicken to wear, like saddles, and things that are practical, like diapers, but apart from that I think chickens should go unadorned. Shoes would make it difficult for them to scratch (and chickens love scratching), necklaces would get stuck on things and choke the birds and t-shirts and things like that would be uncomfortable and make it hard for them to maintain their correct body heat and use their wings. Little hats is fine for photo shoots like your avatar pic, but only apart from that I think they should go natural.
