Why would you buy this?

Recommended Posts

I HAVE ONE !!! :lol:

It's my Birthday today and just opened my present from my best friend...( she isn't a chicken person )

Not sure what to do with it, might try a photo shoot with the girlies, mind you seeing as they are all pretty tiny, may try on Lil as she is a black bearded silky so might make her glow in the dark. Must admit it did make me laugh.

I am expecting one as a novelty gift for Christmas, my OH works in construction and occasionally comes home wearing the whole HI Vis boots thing, he is a Manley man but stands on our garden step shouting princess layer, Betty boo, where are you? I have to admit seeing him standing there calling the girls.....I have never wanted him more :drool:

Well after all you gals saying the man in your life would be calling the men in white coats if you attempted to buy this for your feathered friends I decided to see OH's reaction. I casually (as you do) said " if its a cold winter I might buy the girls a coat each from Omlet, they have some in pink" :shock: Long silence and he fixed me with a stern look " they don't need coats, I thought you gave them porridge and corn to keep them warm" whoops 'nuff said - no coats for my ladies :whistle:

I found the comments under the article more interesting than the article itself, especially the one below.....

If people are worried about urban hens getting out onto the roads they should look at fencing, not Hi-vis!

 

Can see the benefit as a saddle to protect against a cockerel or bullies but not as a raincoat.

 

Good marketing exercise and its made the National press but I'm not sure I believe 200 sold in the first 10 days! :lol:

I was listening to the radio as I drove this morning about 7 and the high vis jackets were ! It was part of a traffic report so not sure of the station but as it was the M40, probably Berkshire, Surrey or Oxfordshire. They are certainly exciting media interest - maybe that was the intention?
