Photos: Woman knits sweaters for her chickens to keep them warm
A 25-year-old woman, Nicola Congdon and her mother from Falmouth in
Cornwall, England, knits tiny jumpers for their chicken so they don't
suffer from cold.
"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," Nicola said. "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"

The women own around 60 hens and half of them are former battery
chickens, who, unfortunately, having spent all their lives in cages, are
not able to acclimatise to normal weather conditions.
"We’ve also had inquiries so far from Canada as well as local
people asking for the jumpers. If anyone would like to purchase one we
ask for a donation for an AIDS orphanage in South Africa," added Nicola.
