Nicola Congdon and her mom, Ann were moved with compassion and rescued battery chickens by providing them their new shelter. These chickens were used to be living inside a very limited space cage that is artificially lit and designed for egg-laying. Thanks to these two sympathetic women who have around 60 hens with which half of them came from battery cages.
Aside from a comfy and spacious shelter given to the chickens, Ann and Nicola who came from Falmouth in Cornwall, England also devised an unconventional way to keep them warm by knitting tiny sweaters for them which are made of yarn. “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,” says Nicola.
“We’ve also had inquiries so far from Canada as well as local people asking for the jumpers. If anyone would like to purchase one we ask for a donation for an AIDS orphanage in South Africa,” added Nicola.
