Sorry - should have been more specific! Yes, I’m making jumpers for rescue chickens as they don’t have any feathers. They will grow back but the jumpers keep them warm until they do. The stitch names in US patterns are different so it’s jusr easier to work with UK ones. (Pic shows condition of a rescued bird)?
Hi KateK . I've found this pattern on ravelry. I don't think it's downloadable, but it's very easy. It's all one in double crochet. It's written in American terminology, but just do dc instead of sc. I can follow anything as I'm now bilingual where crochet is concerned. You might be able to print out the pattern . plumcreekmama.blogspot.com/2009/10/hen-sweater.html
Katek wonderful and I hope find some patterns. If I ever have hens again I will get rescue girls. A friend had some and it was glorious to see them on grass for the first time ever and behaving as hens should in the sunshine. Good on 'yer girl
I wrapped mine in tin foil.....seriously. We got 6 bald birds once, like you it was in the winter. I wrapped then up in tin foil and a week or so until their new feathers came through. Kept them in a shed with loads of hay (softer that straw)
