Lola is Not Happy ~ Road Trip

I finally found a chicken saddle/apron for Lola.  Sparta has ripped out her backside feathers completely.  She is the only chicken so far, that is like this.
 
Lola does not like her saddle/apron.  Once the kids put it on her, she went "bananas" and squawked and squawked.  She went running around, trying to get it off.  The other chickens followed and chased, wondering what that thing was on her.  In the photo you can see they are all staring at her, in curiosity.

However, by evening, she was still upset.  I hope she has gotten used to it by this morning, and will agree to wear it.


Hubby was called in again for more repairs at work.  This time it was 3:50am.  He's still not home yet, and it will be a long Sunday for him.

Today we have a road trip scheduled.

Oh, your poor little chicken...bullied and then humiliated! LOL! She needs a BIG friend to stick up for her...poor thing. I hope that works and the stress of wearing it doesn't cause her to lose the rest of her feathers.

Poor Lola. I hope the apron does the trick and she agrees to wear it!
