Birds' fashion sense is all too rarely reported, but it seems a week-old chick have found a way of standing out of the flock, it is reported.
Little Crane, an African crowned crane, has been dressed in a pair of green sock to help its feet develop, the BBC reports.
The chick, born a week ago at Paradise Park in Hayle in Cornwall, has curled toes and staff at the park have turned to a pair of socks
to rectify the problem.
Now the chick is well on the way to a normal gait and the socks
have been removed.
Little Crane is not the first member of the animal kingdom to don a pair of novelty socks
Farmers in Australia recently found sheep sporting some organicsocks
made from spear grass that had wrapped itself round the animals' lower legs. Try our vibrant Colour Burst Range
