Poor Timing

MoltingEdwina decided to molt right as it’s getting cold this year.  Sometimes the barn looks like a chicken massacre with all the feathers lying around.  If I could knit, I’d make her a little sweater.

    So how will she stay warm this winter?

    She will huddle at night with the other chickens, bask in the sun during the daytime and there are always two nesting boxes if she’s smart enough to get in there. Her feathers are starting to come back, thankfully!

    Poor Edwina. With a face only my mother could love.

    Hopefully Edwina’s feathers have grown back by now. If not, I came across two knitted chicken sweater patterns – http://www.geekosystem.com/chicken-sweaters/ and here: http://chat.allotment.org/index.php?topic=29055.0
    Do you crochet instead of knitting? There’s a crocheted sweater pattern here: http://barnyardsandbackyards.org/2011/02/03/chicken-sweaters/ .
    (Please note that the two knitted patterns might be the same – I haven’t checked.)

    Do you know anyone who knits or crochets? They would not have to be told until afterwards what the patterns were for – if you think that might make a difference to them.
