Why did the chicken cross the road? To pick herself up a hot pink reflective jacket so she won’t get struck by a passing car after a long night of slugging back wine coolers and tipping cows with her hen friends, apparently. Omlet, the U.K.-based purveyor of très chic hen house the Eglu, high-end hamster cages, and other fashionable critter-keeping accoutrements, has pretty much gone and outdone every other company offering whacky accessories for your backyard brood with the release of the High-Vis Chicken Jacket. The £12.00 jacket is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a rainproof, fluorescent — choose from yellow or pink — bib with a reflective strip and a quilted lining that’s designed to easily fit the contours of your domestic chicken’s shapely frame.
