This is my blog about the day to day lives of my little flock of pet chickens. They're a happy little flock, although they're totally crackers! If you want a laugh, they'll gladly give you one.

Knitting jumpers for rescue chickens
Take a look at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8537773.stm which is a video of a group of knitters in Somerset who knit jumpers for bald rescue chickens. It shows chickens modelling these jumpers too. Knowing my knitting capabilities, my daughter suggested I shouldn't bother unless there was a gigantic 3 legged hen who needed a jersey! How well she knows my knitting capabilities. But I do admire these ladies and their caring approach. There are chicken jumper patterns to be found on the web if you feel the need to get your knitting needles out to help your local hen rescue organisation.
