Samurai Piper. Cuz… Chicken Armor.

This is a great idea if you have a “bullied” hen.

Mind Your Dirt

A half-assed attempt to build armor for my often bullied silkie. Sword training will commence at sunrise. Impulsive she is. Yet, not too old for training.

Prototype A: Death Proof Mark I

I’m still working on the attachment part, but she’s got full range of movement. This officially signals that I have too much time on my hands.

Here’s what I did:

image Sketched out and cut a pattern.

image Transferred it to some non-skid soft material

image I used dividers from a fastener container for the armor plating.

image Drilled and sewed them puppies on.

image Bad-ass paint job complete with predator eyes and then test fit.

image Some sweet padding that also holds the stitching together.

One thought on “Samurai Piper. Cuz… Chicken Armor.”

  1. Side note: the chicken armor is working like a dream! Piper can now eat with the rest of the flock without being attacked! She also has more confidence whenever I throw a wayward grasshopper into the pit, she sometimes gets it first and fights to keep it.

    I couldn’t be more proud of my little fluffball! Who knew, armor.
