GET KNIT­TING!

Your Chickens - - Nuggets -

A char­ity is call­ing on the coun­try’s knit­ters to pick up their nee­dles in the name of hen wel­fare.

The Bri­tish Hen Wel­fare Trust is in need of a steady sup­ply of egg cosies as they have be­come so pop­u­lar that they are now a key fundraiser for the char­ity.

There are many fan­tas­tic pat­terns to work on so, if you are handy with a knit­ting nee­dle, the char­ity would love to re­ceive your de­signs.

Corinne Hen­drie, the char­ity’s chief cosy in­spec­tor, said: “Our sup­porter’s egg cosies go down so well at shows and, more im­por­tantly, bring in lots of do­na­tions to help us save more hens. “

The Bri­tish Hen Wel­fare Trust is well-known for its pi­o­neer­ing work in re-hom­ing com­mer­cial lay­ing hens and has found pet homes for more than 575,000 hens since hatch­ing in 2005. MORE: www.bhwt.org.uk
