The world has a lot of domesticated chickens, but the world's climate may not be very nice for them in the chilly months. By knitting them cute sweaters, some of us humans are helping them get out of their coops no matter the season. The sweaters are particularly helpful for birds that are currently in the middle of molting when their feathers are thin and less able to help them keep warm.
The trend is growing so rapidly, that even if you don't have the knitting skills, many artisans carry whole lines of sweaters.
You can even get sweaters for your favorite pop-culture properties, like these Harry Potter house ones.
"Even the roosters will notice the chicken's sophisticated look in this sweater."
Some of the most popular artisans are Nicola Congdon and her mother Ann, who get requests from around the world for their little sweaters.
