Offbeat news: Crafty woman hatches plan to combat chicken’s sore feet - by making it pair of shoes

Lynn Watson, 47, is the owner of 10 hens, including bluebell chicken Duster‚ who weighs a whopping 8lbs.

The hen has a bad habit of jumping two feet from her coop instead of using the ramp.

This has caused the fowl to damage her feet and contract an infection called bumblefoot‚ which can be fatal if left untreated.

But Lynn and her son Alexander Craggy have come to the rescue, first cutting out the bacterial infection, then bandaging the five-year old hen’s feet up.
