Chicken Sweaters: How to Make Them to Protect Your Chickens
If your chickens have bald patches or seem to get really cold in the winter, you might like to crochet them a sweater with one of these free patterns. Little Hen Rescue had shared a free knitting pattern to create a chicken sweater, the site is gone but the pattern is below and for a different patter you can check out the free pattern from Ravelry. These chicken sweaters can help your chickens survive the cold winter. Does your chickens have bald spots ?
Have you ever used chicken sweaters ? Please share your experiences and tips ?
