The Bald hens. See Ross Parry story RPYHENS; Bald hens in Nantwich, Cheshire will be staying warm this winter - after being spotted sporting adorable woolly jumpers knitted for them. Bald hens are staying snug this winter thanks to woolly jumpers knitted for them by warm hearted students from Reaseheath College in Nantwich. The 12 hens, which had come from an intensively managed indoor system, are among the latest additions to Reaseheath’s mini zoo. They are being looked after by staff and students at the college’s animal centre. Because the hens had never been outside before, their feathers were not well grown enough to withstand the January chill.
