Chicken sweaters




My MIL sent me a link to a story from the BBC about a woman knitting sweaters for some chickens who have lost their feathers.

I did a search and discovered that a battery chicken is a chicken rescued from a mass-production egg facility, so I feel even better about knitting helping to keep them warm. And isn't the little chicken sweater cute?

I wish I'd thought to knit sweaters for a few of my chickens when they'd gotten a bit hen-pecked. Wow!

This is too funny! How did you get the chicken to stand still long enough to put the sweater on?
