Sharktooth Thinks Sweaters Are STupid

Sharktooth thinks chicken sweaters are not cool. I think she looks stylish, but she made us take it off.

 

The sweaters were donated by a knitting club in New Mexico. Chickens are warm-weather birds and some have problems in the winter.

 

This is especially true of high-producing egg-laying breeds who are bred to produce 5-6 times more eggs than normal. All that energy in producing eggs takes away from laying down fat, muscle, healthy feathering to keep them warm.
