As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Birds without feathers kitted out in woolly jumpers


Best of hens Sage and Onion were kept in such poor conditions on a battery farm that they lost all of their feathers.

However the duo can now look forward to a warm future together after being rescued by caring new owner Sue Christy and are now well on the way to a recovery.

'I did try making the jumpers but it was a complete disaster,' said the Gloucester resident.

'Surprisingly I managed to find some on eBay, it's amazing what you can find on there.

'They seem very happy with their jumpers, I think they like being warm again. They seem happy enough.'  

The featherless pair would have struggled to cope with the wintery conditions after being neglected by their previous owners when they stopped laying eggs regularly.
