Any knitters out there? Or in your family??

Dear All,

This is a plea on behalf of many hens (2000 plus) due to be rescued during the next 2 months who will more than likely be bald and therefore feel the cold upon being released from the torture that is a battery cage or barn.

We don't want your money, we want people who can knit little hen jumpers with offcuts of wool and forward them to us.

Please see this article in the Norwich Evening News http://www.eveningnews24.co.uk/content/News/story.aspx?brand=ENOnline&category=News&tBrand=enonline&tCategory=news&itemid=NOED01%20Dec%202008%2012%3A41%3A23%3A690

Here is a pattern- http://littlehenrescue.co.uk/jumpers.aspx
You will also see some pictures of the hens in a very bald state who have previously been rescued and rehomed by Little Hen rescue.

PLEASE, If you can help, or have a parent or grandparent who would like to do something REALLY kind for these little sweeties. Please follow the pattern on the website then contact littlehenrescue@aol.com
