Rescued hens from battery cages rarely have a full set of feathers and in winter can freeze to death so these little jumpers are knit to keep them warm until their feathers come in.

I only modified the pattern, I don’t know of any charities at the moment. Thank you.

Please feel free to comment with contact details of those who will take the jumpers, any country welcome.
