Chickens will soon be strutting their stuff and shaking their tail feathers in a range of colourful handmade jumpers produced in Ashford.
The mini jumpers are being knitted by a group of sixth-formers at the Towers School in Kennington, for ex-battery hens which have lost their feathers.
Gemma Newington, the teacher of the personal social and health education class, said: “We were learning about the rights of animals when we stumbled across a few charities that take in donated jumpers for chickens. We felt so sorry for them and decided to have a go at knitting a few ourselves.”
Ex-battery hens lose their feathers when they get bored while in tightly packed cages, as they pluck out each other’s feathers.
