I’ve wowed you with caprine couture, so how about hen habiliments?
Mary Ellen and The Colonel, our two full-sized roosters, have been fairly aggressive with a couple of our girls this winter. They stand on their backs and pull the girls’ back feathers out in the heat of passion. Poor biddies! Time, then, for some costumes, straight from the bench of my dear mother-in-law’s whirring sewing machine. And my dear husband whipped up this template for you to follow along at home. Print it out on 8-1/2″x11″ paper. Use elastic bands for the arm loops, heavy canvas for the body, and of course you can embroider “Keep Off” on the saddle itself!
