This is me with one of my Chickens, who we called Queen Mab, or Queenie for short.
She was in the middle of a moult, where they lose feathers and regrow them slowly.
At one point they tend to look a bit porcupinish.
We took this photo of Queenie when she decided to come into say hello when the back door was open. She was one of the friendliest hens I have had. We decided for a laugh to put a little knitted hat and some wooly christmas decorations on her, just for the camera. She didn’t seem to mind.
She was a very nice hen.
