Chicken in jumpers

I love this!


Our local BBC news had a story on the chickens at Raystede animal centre today and I’ve spotted one of the chickens wearing one of my jumpers! Yay! Here she is, the gorgeous girl. Mine is the one with the heart on it. Excuse not too great quality of the pictures, they are just print screens of the news story.

Chicken Jumper

I think this is the coolest thing!


So today morning I am sitting and knitting when my mum rings on Skype.

She asks: what are you knitting?

I say: hmmm, a chicken jumper…

mum: what????

now my dad comes by to say hello. Mum says to him, hey guess what your daughter is knitting, I am betting you a bottle of Whiskey you won’t guess. Dad ventured a guess of a tea cosy. Mum happily exclaimed: “Wrong! A chicken jumper!” All my dad could say was “crazy” with a shake of a head and walked away.

But yeah, that is what I am knitting, a chicken jumper. My most favourite animal rescue centre, Raystede gave a shout out yesterday on Facebook asking for chicken jumpers for the newly rescued 260 ex-battery hens. They also put up a link to a pattern. It only took me an evening to knit one jumper and I’ve done the finishing work…
