Valerie the chicken being measured for her jacket at The Zip Yard in Winton, Dorset<br />
These cosy chickens will certainly not feel the cold this winter, after having chic jackets specially made for them.<br />
<br />
The plucky pair, named Margot and Valerie, were rescued from a battery farm where they never left their cages or saw the outside world.<br />
<br />
New owner Trevor Stickley feared they wouldn't be able to tolerate the cold weather so took to the internet and discovered a company selling coats for chickens. They bought one of the custom garments and had it altered to fit Margot, before having a second tailor-made for Valerie at a clothing alterations company.
