I ordered 3 of these jackets 2pink and one yellow for my boy first day of wearing they are not at all impressed walking backwards and squat walking one of the hens keeps trying to get her foot inside the front of jacket ...I me persevering with them and checking them regularly to make sure they are ok as we do get overhead predictors here so the jackets wearing will keep them safe and helps to keep the amorous boy from hurting the girls ...would recommend ..brilliant
I bought these for my hens not so much for the high viz but because we live in the Scottish Highlands and I wanted jackets for some of my poor hens who, thanks to the cockerel's amorous attentions, are totally bald on their backs. I was worried to death about them being cold and some of them were very obviously miserable. With these jackets problem solved. Once the jackets were on and the hens became accustomed to them (which took about 24 hours) they perked up no end and now seem very contented again. The jackets have the added bonus of protecting them from further attention from himself so winners all round. The advice is not to use the jackets as pyjamas but I have been leaving them on 24/7 because the temperatures drop so low here at night. I check constantly for any hen showing signs of discomfort and pick them up and check for fit and rubbing every few days. There are no problems and I am sure the girls are not too warm at night - like I say we live in the Scottish Highlands. I am delighted, many thanks Omlet.
I bought 3 of each colour and very pleased with the quality. Perfect fit for my large girls. They soon got used to wearing them. Good value too. I could do with a smaller size to fit my two silkie white bantams please. Thank you.
