Chicken Sweaters

Whoever heard of a chicken wearing a sweater? Well, apparently, these ladies in Great Britain did. After rescuing several battery chickens, a friend of Jane Blaine's, of Eynsham asked her to knit some of them sweaters (or jumpers as they are called in other parts of the world). What a nice person to manage to not only knit a sweater for these sad birds with missing feather, but to have the patience to measure them to start with. Those who have raised chickens can only imagine the dedication of these two ladies from Oxfordshire. Hats off to the two of you. To see a picture of one of the sweaters, follow the link below:
