I never thought in a million years that we would advance from dog jackets and cat fleece. I thought it couldn’t be done, we had been to the end of the cute world and back and now we had made our adorable-pets bed and all we had left to do was sleep in it.
But dear readers, I was wrong. So very, very wrong.

Nicola Congdon, the ingenious knitter from Falmouth in Cornwall, England explained that her reasoning behind her unique choice for the chickens was to make people “aware of the poor conditions the hens live in.” She then added that the knitted “tank tops” are not only for their warmth, but to help the foul become “easy to identify” when roaming in herds.
