Freezing Chickens Get Sweaters

Freezing-chickens-get-tiny-colorful-sweaters-from-kind-woman1-830x467This from Lost in E Minor:

In Cornwall, England, 25-year-old Nicola Congdon keeps her rescued chickens warm by dressing them up in knitted wooly jumpers. Half of Congdon’s 60 chickens are former battery farm chickens, meaning their bodies have trouble acclimatizing to cold weather after having spent all their lives cooped up inside cramped cages.

So to prevent them from freezing during winter, Congdon and her mum, Ann, have come up with the tiny, colorful sweaters.

‘It’s important to make people aware of the poor conditions the hens live in and the fact that they have no feathers when they are retired’, Congdon told Mashable. ‘The tank tops are also something really different that provide some fun for the chickens. They keep them warm and makes the chickens easy to identify’.

And if that’s not kind-hearted enough, Congdon adds that the money they make from selling the tops to hen keepers go to an AIDS charity in South Africa.

Wow, looks good on them. The good thing is, we can customize the way they are designed and made. Really fabulous. Thanks for posting this!
