Shaz..........Sunglasses for chickens have been around since at least early in the last century. My MIL was reading an article in a Chicago paper where the writer laughing referred to "sunglasses for chickens". My MIL just happen to have a pair. They were actually used in commericial chicken farms. Chickens...if they see other chickens bleeding will attack and kill it. The chicken farmers had sunglasses make of aluminum with red ceuloid for the lens and they used a cotter pin that went through a hole on one side of the glasses...through a pierced hole in the chickens beak and through a hole in the other side of the glasses. My MIL took a photo of the "chicken sunglasses" on a rubber chicken...sitting on the newspaper article..and sent it to the writer. He wrote another article including her photo.
