Chicken Fashion for Southern Belles in Georgia

Though Chicken Saddles  are a practical part of keeping hens healthy during breeding season by protecting them from feather loss from roosters claws, that does not mean they can't be colorful and fun!  
Not only do I enjoy making and selling them,  but it is even more enjoyable when customers send in pictures of their chickens wearing them !!!  

 Suzanne Bailey of Sandy Creek Farm in Brooklet,Ga.  sent a few pictures of her girls wearing our chicken saddles while hard at work :)

Chicken Saddle Give Away!

What is the well dressed chicken wearing this spring?

 So glad you asked!   With Spring time comes all those bright beautiful garden colors we love:  pinks, blues. oranges and purples.  That is the inspiration for this years line of Chicken Saddles or Chicken Aprons.  Not only do they protect your hens from loosing feathers during breeding season, but they look great and are machine washable.  Generally, I make these in assorted colors and patterns for $7 each.

I am going to be giving away a set of three saddles every month for the months of April, May, June and July.  

To enter for the give away simply spread the word by linking to Cochin Coop News   and leave a comment letting me know you did.

Winners will be announced the last day of the month.

Rooster Report March 3, 2012

Jail Bird-  Rowdy Boy Tibbs
 A rooster known as Rowdy boy Tibbs has been caught and is being held in the local jail on three charges of aggravated assault.  Officials say that according to witnesses,  the assaults occurred on three separate days within the last week and involved the same victim each time.
Defense attorneys were said to be scrambling around eggs-citedly  as they prepared  to go before the judge this afternoon.
 Family and friends report   that the female  victim was uninjured during the violent attacks.

First March Arrival

 In other news, the first chicks of the season began arriving today.  The front runner was a light Brahma / silver laced mix who was quickly followed by others as well as some giant Cochin.  At last report all appeared healthy and were busy jockeying for the most comfortable positions next to the windows with the best views.

Breaking Ground in Backyard Acres

And finally, after months of stalls and delays caused by finances, labor negotiations and Husband approval, ground was broken yesterday as the Chicken Little Corp.  began the clearing and clean up of land slated for a new development in the upscale community of Backyard Acres.  Sources said contractors were committed to using recycled materials during construction and hoped revenue would be enough to continue the company's sustainable living adventure.
