Our chickens started to lay again. Yea, big smile for fresh eggs!
Rich told me he was watching Antiques Road Show the other day and one of the items they critiqued was chicken glasses. Rich told me the agent said the originals are very rare and priced them at around $500. Crazy. The image I had in my head was pretty much this.
But in reality, they sort of make sense, in an odd, too much work type of way. If a chicken has a wound other chickens will peck at it. So in the 1930’s some people would put rose tinted classes on their chickens and then the chicken would see everything with a red tint. Which means they would not see the blood on another chicken and peck at her.
I think these are the ones Rich saw on the show. They have a mudflap design.
I think these have a steam punk thing going for them. If your chicken is going to wear glasses, why not steam punk ones? right?
Apparently they have modern ones out now that look like this.
Honestly I think it would just be way easier to separate the wounded chicken until she has time to heal. But to each his own, right?
