A woman is knitting tiny wool jumpers to keep her chickens warm

A woman who has adopted several battery chickens has found a novel way to keep them warm – by knitting them woolly JUMPERS.

Nicola Congdon, 25, and her mother Ann, 58, have been re-homing battery chickens for several years, but discovered that they would get cold when outdoors. The chickens from the battery farms often had only a few feathers, as they would pull them out in frustration, and could not handle the cold 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 in Falmouth, Cornwall.
