This sweater has been described as a "perfect Christmas gift" for your feathered friend.
We've heard of sweaters for dogs to keep them warm during the cold, but have you ever heard of sweaters for chickens? Etsy has one of the most adorable pieces of clothing you will ever see on an animal. It's called the Christmas sweater for chickens and it comes in all kinds of colors. The best part and in tune with the festive mood, it is crocheted and also comes in red. The sweater is being sold by the AnimalFunandFashion, which called the product "A perfect Christmas gift!" Whether it be your pet chickens or some of your favorites on your farm, the sight of chickens in these Christmas sweaters is sure to bring a smile to everyone's face, while also setting you up for the festive season.
As the seller's moniker suggests, they are into clothing particularly designed for animals, and a glance at their products shows quite an impressive array of crocheted sweaters. There's a dark green one with some pearls. There's also a light blue and light red one. Another sweater in pink with the ends in dark red is also very good. The prices of each range from $16 to $18 and come in small, medium, and large sizes. The seller, however, has asked customers to keep in mind a few things before ordering the product. "Please make sure you choose the correct size sweater before ordering. Keep in mind that they have some stretch to them," the seller mentioned while also instructing them to not forget to mention the colors they want their sweater in. Once ordered it will take "2-3 days" for the product to reach them.
While the sweaters make for a cute item of clothing, there might be some concerns about it hindering the bird's growth. The seller stated in this regard, "I have been advised that these sweaters may not be safe for chickens to wear constantly. They can interfere with molting, or their feet can become tangled in the yarn if the fit is not correct. Buyer holds all responsibility for the safety of their chickens." The reviews for the products were mostly positive.
