Hens Wear Jumpers To Keep Warm
Former battery hens, who plucked out their feathers in frustration while living in cramped conditions, are now strutting around outside in knitted woolly jumpers.
The sleeveless sweaters have been knitted by Brigitte Hawley who rescued four chickens from battery farming.
Hens cooped up without room to move often pluck out their feathers in frustration - but when they were allowed to wander freely outside the chickens suffered from cold.
Brigitte, of Benenden, Kent, came up with the idea to knit them winter body-warmers after she saw a competition run by online knitwear company Laughing Hens. Link
