The Observer - - NEWS - HANNAH SBEGHEN Hannah.Sbeghen@glad­sto­neob­

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.
