Why did the chicken cross the road?

 To get this - a coat for hens that don't have their full quota of feathers.  The SPCA in Auckland rescues hens from battery cages and they are often missing some of their feathers so the coats are to keep them warm until their feathers grow back. I used scraps from an earlier crocheted cowl - hence the very stylish colour-block coat. Bet the other hens will be jealous.

 And I finally finished this - Britannic. It fits perfectly.
 And another pair of Birdie's Mitts for a friend.
