WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

A lack of feathers won't be a problem for these two chickens this winter after their owner kitted them out in woolly jumpers to keep them warm.

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.
