Little Hen Rescue

Yes, that is some chickens with jumpers on. And yes, you can make one yourself and help a distressed and pecked-to-heck little chucks. A good use of craft eh? Their website has a marvelously odd background sound thing going on as well. Go see what it's all about here.
Postscript: 'Battery eggs from caged hens will be a thing of the past from 2012 when a ban on caged egg production is due to be implemented. With many supermarkets also joining in to support free range, the demand for free range will only increase. Sainsbury’s is the latest supermarket to stop selling eggs from caged hens, adding their name to the list along with Marks and Spencer and Waitrose, and Morrisons are due to do the same next year. We just need the other giants, Tesco and Asda to join the ranks, and the fate of caged eggs should be sealed.' Source

  1. Thank you Steve for voicing the plight of the poor little hens. Don't you feel good now :-) I still need to sit down with Blizzard to get her to help me knit their jumpers for the impending winter (although the summer isn't looking too hot in every way either) xxx
