Picture of How To Make A Rooster Costume

There’s nothing cuter than a newly walking toddler flopping around in a chicken costume for Halloween. But when mom wants a baby chicken, and dad wants something "cooler" for his son, the resulting compromise is the most adorable of roosters!

With just a handful of very accessible items, you too can make this amazing costume for your little one. Kids really grow up so fast, and the photo ops and memories you create with your baby rooster will be priceless. And with a detachable rooster butt, this costume will stand up against even the most active of chickens!

That costume is great. It reminds me of the chicken from the movie Moana.
