Say What, Sweetie? Review: Party Fowl
Hey Blogville! Welcome to a fabulous, fantastically fun segment of Dachshund Nola: "Say what, Sweetie?" This is Sweetie, Nola's grandma...though Sugar (Nola's grandpa) and I object to the term "grandparents", as we are much too young and outrageous to consider ourselves of grandparent status (no meanness meant to any other amazing grandparents!) Nola gets her brains and beauty from me and her fashion sense and diva style from Sugar, BOL!
From time to time, Nola is ever so graciously going to allow me to do a post. Could be a review, or a Q&A, or just random ramblings! This post is a review of Party Fowl's 1 Strap harnesses! That's right, we put our poultry on a harness! First, a bit about the shop:
Party Fowl Supplies makes harnesses, leashes, costumes, diapers and shoes for ducks, chickens, and geese. Their walking harness can be used for things like:
-Take your pet poultry out for a walk without needing to be diapered.
-Allow your duck or goose to swim in ponds or lakes without risk of swimming away.
-Bring your pet into public without breaking leash laws.
-Allow your feathered friend more movement without wandering away.
-Bring your feathered Friend to shows, swaps, and meets uncaged.
So! Harness arrived, amid much anticipation and joy- especially from Sugar. He couldn't wait to walk his beloved ducks (blue Swedish)! Ok, maybe I was a little eager as well! Sadly and comedically, mayhem ensued!
First, maybe if we had started trying to harness up ducklings, as opposed to mature ducks, we would have been more successful! Our ducks were NOT happy girls as we wrestled and wrangled, pleaded and cajolled them into the harness. They squawked! They flapped! They flat out bitched! We persevered, and amid laughter and tears managed to "walk" them briefly! Then we tried a hen...with similar results. Comedy hour on our micro mini farm!
- cute idea
- well made (held up to our struggles!)
- love supporting small businesses
-sadly, our fowl hated our walking attempts
So, that's a wrap for Say What, Sweetie- y'all enjoy your day! :)
