Chicken Fashion!

It cold in the U.K at the moment, it's also very wet, miserable and flooded.

Peggy is moulting.  She also has a bit of a cold so, as a surprise, Courtney bought her a chicken jumper!

Technically, it's a tank-top but Peggy is not too fussed about fashion, technical terms.

Peggy in her new jumper.  Does the blue match my eyes?

Violet's head was in a spin when she saw Peggy's new attire.

Mabel & Pearl stuffing their faces, in the background,
yet to experience the visual wonder of a chicken jumper!

 Peggy tried not to notice Violet, admiring her new fashion style.

We left Peggy and her gaggle of chicken jumper admirers and went for a day out in Worcester, which is also flooded at the moment.

We saw swans, a lot of swans!

I have never seen so many swans in one place before.

The area, past the building in the background and just past the lamppost and tree, is usually a walk-way alongside the river.  
The swans are very much making the most of the floods. (So are the pigeons.)

Courtney tried tempting the swans with jumpers...

...the swans were not impressed with the offer.

A disapproving swan.

None of the swans were interested in fashion accessories, they are quite beautiful and warm enough.

There's no denying it, they are quite beautiful. 

I would love to have a swan, I think the Queen could spare one, she seems to have quite a lot. 

Maybe she suffers from swan math?! :D



  1. Awww, that jumper is so cute! What a great solution to her being cold. And those swans are gorgeous!

    1. I know, we just want to cuddle her even more!!! :D And she's not complaining or fussing, so it's working out ok :)

      The swans are adorable, but so big when you're up close! xxx

  2. How cute! She looks lovely!

  3. Peggy looks very fancy in her nice outfit! :) haha. Thanks for the virtual hug and supportive words in that last blog comment lovely. Right back at ya <3 xx

  4. I love your little chicken jumpers.
    What beautiful Cochin chickens you have.

  5. Omg, Peggy's outfit is so cute :) I wonder if I could convince some of our birds to try one out lol. And I totally agree with you, wouldn't mind having a swan (or two or three) myself :)
