I find when tending chickens it helps to mimic a more chicken like appearance. The metal belt is also a must for homesteading because it protects your hips from horns, thorns, or anything really. Grandma Davis is a little shy about the whole outfit, though she did whisper and ask to borrow the belt.
The imaginary description on the back of the photo reads:
"Grandma Davis and her out of town friend continue to revolutionize not only how to care for chickens, but how to dress on the farm. Their outfits have brought praise and suspicion over the modern day women".
