Two women from England are doing something remarkable for their rescued chickens.
Nicola Congdon and her mother Ann, of Cornwall, England, are knitting “chicken jumpers” for their hens, which once laid eggs in industrial battery cages.
The rescued chickens have trouble getting acclimated to normal weather conditions outside the factory, so the hand-knit sweaters help keep them warm. Nicola says she got the idea after reading an article about rescued battery chickens.
“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, according to Bored Panda.
