Fowl Gestures…

– – Colonel Sanders probably wouldn’t do this; knit a sweater for a chicken, that is…

In certain environmental conditions or when they are heavily stressed, some animals can lose their fur or feathers, as the case may be.- -Well, some chickens in England were rescued from a poultry farm where conditions were so bad that the birds lost their feathers!  Volunteer knitters responded by creating over 100 sweaters for the afflicted chickens, which I suppose we may refer to as chicken cardigans or pullet pullovers.   Not to be found in any catalogs, each of the tiny sweaters when knitted by hand took two and a half to three hours to complete.

The rescued chickens while freed from incarceration will wear the sweaters to help them acclimate to conditions on the outside, and hopefully they will only see the Colonel in their worst nightmares…just like I see the Burger King in mine.

    This raises te question as to which came first. The chicken or the darning egg?

      All I know is that you don’t trust a fox to guard a hen house. I’d organize them to overthrow Frank Perdue…

    Didn’t he already retire, though, and leave the business to his son?
