    Well, my friend (the pastor's wife) asked me if it was at all possible for me to bring a chicken to their VBS for the kids to play with. I said shure why not, so I set about choosing the right hen. I went through... Buffy the (broody) vampire slayer, Jenny, Lucas, Lilly, Lola, Loretta, pip, squeek, bear and Jhonny. Jenny and Buffy are the only "grown ups" and Buffy's got an attidude, so Jenny it is. I'm about to go get her harness on and bathe her. (yes, my chickens are harness trained) So, she'll be the life of the party tomorrow [​IMG] wish us luck [​IMG]

    Good luck! [​IMG] What does her harness look like? Could you post a pic? Did you make it yourself?

    Well of course, after her bath, Jenny tried to trick the foolish human into letting her stay home by pretening to be sick. But as the human knows, Jenny is NEVER too sick to eat sliced cheese and a crunch bar [​IMG]

    Welcome, To the other poster, I started when they where about six months old. For the first few days they wear it 24/7 and after that they just wear it when we go out. [​IMG]
