Max’s chook fashion a hit
Sizzling trend for Ekka chicks
YOU’VE got to be clucking mad not to get your chickens a bikini for summer – especially since our region’s very own Max Cosgrove designed them.
The young Mt Larcom farmer, who has made a name for himself in chicken fashion has made a stylish comeback with the unique chickini – a bikini for chooks.
Max, 11 is at the Brisbane Ekka this week with the new apparel and said the bikinis were very popular.
Going at $15 a pop in a range of hot summer colours, Max is also donating $1 from every purchase to Breast Cancer Australia.
“For winter we had the beanies and the jumpers for the chooks so it was just a matter of asking myself what’s good for summer?”
The kidpreneur said his parents bought him a sewing machine two weeks ago and he hasn’t stopped sewing since.
“A lady down the road had to teach me how to use it because I really had no idea how to sew,” Max said.
“I made 30 or 40 odd in two weeks to bring to the show. I’ve sold out completely now.”
Max is also making ‘roo ties’ for roosters.
Max who runs Max’s Chickens, makes his pocket money from breeding and selling chickens which started after he was given just two chickens.
Max said he can post the chickinis anywhere.
It’s not all business for the primary school boy who said he was excited to attend his first Ekka.
“I’m having a lot of fun and I have jumped on a roller-coaster or two,” Max said. To get your chooks looking hot this summer in a bikini send Max a message on Facebook at Max’s Chickens.
