Aug. 18 (UPI) -- A bed and breakfast in Scotland fitted a group of chickens with high-visibility vests to help them cross a local road.

Glenshieling House shared video Friday of a pair of chickens wearing the bright pink vests as they strolled across the rainy street.

Louise Lennox, owner of the Perthsire bed and breakfast, told STV she has 14 hens and a few have a tendency to wander off the property.

"They normally stay in the garden but a couple of them like to go for a wee wander down the path and sometimes across the road," she said. "I just thought it would be a little bit of fun and would also keep the hens safe, so I put some vests on the wanderers."

Lennox hopes the vests will help drivers spot the chickens and encourage them to slow down.

She also printed the phrase "Glenshieling House Girl" on the vests to advertise her business and let people know where to return the chickens if they stray too far.
