What Will They Think of Next?

Do you remember this post? Aprons for chickens, who'd of thought? Certainly not me. I would however consider one now, since our chickens are lacking in the feather department and need some sort of sun protection as well as plucking protection. Take notice of our poor, sad looking Plymouth Barred Rock to the left.

We still have yet to get her or make her an apron to protect her hinny- butt. Shame shame on us...

However...

I found some unusual yet very useful aprony decorations for those of you who must have color coordination in your kitchen and bathroom. If you are a matching accessory Goddess, then this is the place for you!


Not only are there aprons for your dish soap bottles, but there are kitchen aprons, place settings, plastic bag holders, casserole carriers, and tissue box covers. You can really go crazy matching all these accessories. The products are very reasonably priced.

There are items that are masculine as well, including aprons for the "manly man," such a woodsy print with black bears or a fish print pattern. Ladies, don't you think your husband needs a MANPRON??

Just think a manpron could be a great Father's Day gift for the man who loves to cook or BBQ. And just for fun you could throw in the matching dish soap bottle as a hit about the clean up. So head on over there and see what they have to offer!

Once again, that site is Creations by Myrolin, because husbands have a right to look good while cooking too.

i'm sorry, that fishy apron is nice and all, but it just cannot compare to the manliness and attractive-ness of the ones you featured a couple of days ago... snicker snort... *control, diane, control!*


oh, and i think your chickens might be better served by a skirt than an apron;)

The Cookie Girl said...

Somebody help that poor chicken out with an apron...PLEASE!!!!

Okay Suzi...this is a family blog here. No bare Butt Showing. LOL

Terri said...

We have a couple of those chickens running around with bare bums... mine have staggered their molting and so one or two (or three) are bare at any given time. They really look rough, poor things!

Oh, and those apron accessories are too cute!

Grand Pooba said...

I've been trying to get my hubster to wear a manpron for years.

No luck.

Rebecca said...

Our silver laced Wyondottes (sp??) ALL had butts like that - they would not stop pecking each other! We finally gave them away, and we didn't like the pecking they did! : ) I never thought of making them little aprons!!

Julia said...

I am thinking you just have not got the right apron pattern yet Pooba. I say keep trying.

Julia said...

Ours have been chronically like that. It really is quite miserable to look at. They peck each other as a bad habit. My inlaws think they did not get enough protein when they were growing so they started to eat each others feathers then once the habit was formed there was no breaking it. Grrrrr! We have new ones coming fully feathered and the pecking flock is going to be dinner!!! I did not realize molting would cause it too though. But it makes sense.

My husband received a Manpron for Christmas with a fishing pattern on it. He wouldn't wear it so I gave it to my FIL. He does catering part time so at least the apron is getting some use.

Poor Chicken!

Sara said...

I've actually seen my FIL, BILs and husband all wear aprons. I need to catch a picture of them.

The chicken needs an apron! There is a project for you! Do eeet!

Neas Nuttiness said...

OMGosh - those soap bottle aprons are adorable. I'm heading over there right now!!!

Pricilla said...

I have seen these chicken aprons and chuckled.

I reiterate that as a goat I will not ever wear an apron!!!!

Knitnut,Karen said...

That poor chicken! Is that what I have to look forward to with my chickens? This is the first year I've had chickens.
The apron I made ,however,has chickens all over it.I love it!

Bobbi Jo said...

An apron for your chicken would be great to see. Have you tried giving your chickens more calcium. Usually that is what is lacking why they peck each other. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Meghann said...

Woo! I see a bare Plymouth butt! Actually, it is kind of cute, lol, here chicky butt! LOL.
I do hope she gets some sun protection - don't want a chicky-butt sunburn!

My husband used to keep several hundred chickens. He says "check for mites, let them free roam all day, give them hard things to peck at, give them fresh greens to peck at, try the hot-pepper spray, last resort: all new chickens and try a different breed."

That poor chicken. You can see the Parson's Nose very plainly.

Julia said...

Karen,

Naw, YOU should be fine with your chickens. We think there was a combination of issues with ours. Both breed selection and nutrient deficiencies are to attribute to the bad feather growth. The inlaws think the protein in the food they were buying was too low. ALTHOUGH it was supposed to be for the chickens. So the Danish chickens were pecking each other eating feathers to get more protein. Over all the Danish Leghorns are pesky flighty skittish pecky chickens!!

We have new chickens on the way which are not such busy bodies and the inlaws changed the feed a little bit by adding extra protein and fully feathered beauties are growing up now. We are going to AXE all of our ugly chickens this summer and bring in the new ones with gorgeous feathers.

The BAD chickens have had oyster shells forever... Basically free feed on them. And they have had free range several hours a day but to no avail.

I have great hopes for gorgeous chickens in August with the newbies!

Julia said...

Penniwig-I know how sad they look but at least they seem happy and are laying eggs. We have not tried the hot pepper spray so I will put that on tomorrow if I can figure out some spray mixture method. Ground jalapeƱos in a water solution in a sprayer. That may just work.

Monsoon would loooove for his daddy to have an apron. You know, since he's the only one who doesn't have one now. Not sure how hubs would like it, but that's not really the point, is it?
