Who Can Resist a Chicken in a Knitted Hat?

Want to make one? I found a pattern on Ravelry that would work, Tiny Witches Hat by Nina Lilledahl.

  4. Sue

    Love this! And I thought I was mad making them coats but the serious side is chickens get cold stress and frostbite and this is a very classy solution. All the best from Normandie, Sue

    Has anyone tried these on their chickens? I need a solution for my poor hen that is getting the feathers plucked out of the back of her head by the rooster. Those roosters grab on when mating and he’s pulling her feathers out.
