People aren't the only ones getting the benefit of a group of retired knitters in Massachusetts.
FOX's Tonya J. Powers has details:
The knitting club at Fuller Village Retirement Home in Milton gets together and knit sweaters. But the sweater recipients aren't grandkids, they're chickens...
Certain breeds housed at a nearby estate are from tropical climates, and just can't deal with Northeast winters. So, knitters like Libby Kaplan make them little sweaters. Even she wasn't sure about this at first:
(Kaplan) "When they said they were gonna make the sweaters for the chickens, I thought it was the most foolish thing I ever heard in my life."
But estate spokeswoman Erica Max says it's helping:
(Max) "But we have seen a sudden increase in our egg production since these sweaters have gone on."
A lot of love from a little barn yarn.
