What started out as a school project for Julie Baker and her daughter has turned into a full-blown career.

The New Hampshire resident makes $50,000 a year making clothing for chickens. That’s one seriously unique career!

Baker started by just making fashionable-looking diapers for pet chickens — but now her company, Pampered Poultry, has gone on to add tutus, dresses and feather guards to its selection.

Why, you may ask, would chickens need these accessories? The diapers and feather guards serve practical purposes, of course, but the tutus and dresses are just plain fun!

Check out some of Baker’s best designs below because this is honestly something you have to see to believe:

Chicken Diapers

“Our chicken diapers are not just for the fashion obsessed hen. They offer you and your home protection against the inevitable!” the Pampered Poultry website states. “Our diapers fit comfortably and allow you to enjoy your birds in the house or car without worry!”
