The idea for suiting a chicken came in a dream. A dream of a chicken that was covered with hair instead of feathers. Well, you can’t take a chicken’s feathers off and then glue hair on it – can you? This is how the chickenssuit came about.
fashion is hu-man. if animals are wearing clothes it means hu-man-izing them. we love to make animals human (e.g. animation) because this way we believe to understand them better. if we dress animals then only those who appeal to our heart – “useless” animals like cats and dogs. a chicken is useful. it tastes good and it lays eggs – so why would we dress it? dressing a chicken means “secondary” domestication – first for use, then for love.
Hum… strange theory. I don’t agree with all, but with those craziness about bird flu maybe we are going to need to keep the chicken at home. Scary! (Thanks André!)
