A mom and her child in Cornwall, England sew "knitted sweaters" and sell it to help saving battery hens, which usually live and lay eggs in overcrowded coops. Plus, the earnings will be given as a donation to AIDS orphanage in South Africa.
In her Mashable interview, Nicola said that 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.To help these poor chickens, Congdon and her mother, Anne, 58, made sweaters. And nearly half of these more than 60 chickens under their safekeeping were rescued birds. The chickens absolutely love the sweaters. The sweaters are easy to wear on chickens, and when dressed up, they do everything they should be doing, as a chicken would.
