Minnie is a Chicken?!?

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010
Kelly pets Sophie the ChickenMy cousin, Julie, recently got a chicken, and is looking forward to showing it in the fair.

She wanted to show us what her chicken will do in the fair. Julie inspected it, so that the judges would know if it is a healthy birdJulie inspects her chicken's wings

One of her requirements was to dress up her chicken. Julie decided to dress her chicken up as Minnie Mouse. She has an old Minnie doll dress for her chicken, felt arms with little white gloves. She also hollowed out a Minnie Mouse antenna ball for the ears. The funniest thing was that as soon as the dress was put on the chicken,Julie tries to dress her chicken it pulled its head out - looking like a chicken with its head cut off.  When the chicken tried to walk in the dress it would wobble, and turn somersaults across the table.  Oh well, at least it has time to get used to the dress!

I am very impressed with my cousin’s creativity!

Very nice Kelly! Our little Sophie is now a star! She made it into the Mack Academy website!! We are still working with the outfit. Trying to get a chicken used to being dressed up is not an easy thing to do!
