I know it seems like a good idea, but if you make sure your girl is properly fed, and has a dry, draft free coop to sleep in, she'll be fine, honest! :)

thank you for your reply, its just such a shock seeing her and its sooooo cold out during the day wet and windy .They are of course in a draft free building and have food 24/7 . it may not have been such a good idea after all as she would b walking around in a sodden jumper judging by recent weather .thanks anyway everyone :)

I found that the colder it was, the quicker the feathers seem to grow! Nature's way I guess!

Meal worms in their diet to give them protein for the feathers to grow.

I have a pattern for chicken jumpers, but they're not that practical, to be honest. Our hens managed to catch their toenails on the jumpers and trip up - so I wouldn't really consider leaving the birds unattended while wearing them. [Which kinda defeats the object, really, doesn't it?] They do look cute, though.
