Not sure what the raker thought -- my other next door neighbor made the tutus with a relatively broad band of elastic and some tulle. Simple and somewhat disposable. How she even thought of it I do not know. The chickens did not seem to mind them at all, and the whole neighborhood turned out to see this colorful display. The dog, who is not in the film, had a matching tutu on. It was just a wacky kind of tutu day. After a while, we took the tutus off and laughed for the next few weeks about it. The neighbor across the street finally put the footage up on youtube. Chickens in tutus, like a Dali take on Degas.
