Why did the chicken put on its jacket?
To cross the road (safely), of course.
Keeping chickens in an urban setting is popular hobby, and there are a few reasons why it’s a good idea (fresh eggs, insect and weed control, fertilizer production).
But do your chickens need high-visibility chicken jackets?
No, they most certainly do not.
Or tweed chicken jackets?
No, they don’t need these either.
But that doesn’t keep Omelet, a homesteading supply company in Oxfordshire, England (that does sell some functional, if trendy, urban homesteading gear) from selling a large selection of these jackets for chickens.
A high-visibility chicken jacket will set you back £12 (about $20), while a tweed chicken jacket will cost you £20 (approximately $32).
So if you’ve got more money than you know what to do with, your chickens can look like this:
Um, yeah. You just don’t need this stuff.
