These Chickens in Adorable Sweaters Will Melt Your Heart

Just the midday pick-me-up you needed on a MONDAY!

We all love cute animal posts, right? Rabbits, puppies, kittens, koala bears...give us anything and we'll go awww. However, chickens have never quite been able to secure a place for themselves in the list of animals that make you go weak in your knees (we mostly kinda look at them with hungry eyes, imagining them on a barbeque!).

But not Nicola Congdon, a 25-year-old, who has knitted adorable woolly jumpers for her chickens to keep 'em cozy this winter. Nicola, who hails from Falmouth in Cornwall, England, along with her mum Ana, came up with idea about six months ago. She has over 60 chickens—30 of them are battery hens rescued by them and the others are free-rangers. Nicola feels that it's important to make people aware of the poor living conditions of battery hens once they are retired—they have no feathers left and find it extremely difficult to adjust to normal weather. And these funky sweaters not just keep the chickens warm, but also make it easy to identify them.

The good part: Nicola has started receiving special orders for these unique jumpers from far and wide, and instead of making profit out of it, she'll be donating the money to an AIDS orphanage in South Africa.
