Woman Knits Tiny Sweaters for Her Rescued Chickens

For the past six months, a woman named Nicola Congdon and her mother Ann, who are from Falmouth, Cornwall, England, have been knitting tiny wool sweaters, aka woolly jumpers, for the chickens they’ve rescued from factory farms.

“Nicola Congdon, 25, and her mother Ann, 58, have been re-homing battery chickens for some years, but found that they would get cold when they lived outdoors. The chickens from the battery farms often had few feathers, as they would pull them out in frustration, and could not cope with the chilly countryside weather. Nicola decided to knit woolly jumpers for her chickens, and is now getting requests from abroad too purchase the jumpers, which she hand knits in her kitchen.”
