There’s an entire saga going around about chicken sweaters; are they good or are they bad? First of all, they are stylish, that’s for sure. Now to more important things, are they doing more harm than good? Daphene Cybele believes it messes up with their body temperature making chickens feel even colder. “They trap pockets of air in the downy layers of their under-feathers, which insulates them quite well.” But many believe while being backed up with an experience that these claims are just claims. Maureen Schmidt writes a completely different story saying: “Without adequate feathering, they can get quite cold, especially if they drop their old feathers all at once.” With well-made sweaters, chickens are not restricted in the movement at all, and the sweater needs to be easy to get on and get off. Another seller on Etsy, Erin Langston shared her thoughts on the topic as well: “I have never had any problems in the five years I’ve been using chicken sweaters.” Chickens can benefit from sweaters while waiting for their feathers to grow back, so obviously when used at the right time while being supervised chickens with stylish sweaters are an awesome idea.
