Chicken aprons for sale in the shop





I am offering handmade chicken aprons for sale in my etsy shop!

I have been sewing these for my own girls for over a year now, and they are very happy with them.
A lot of back-pecking seems to go on in late winter, what with the hens feeling so bored and cooped up. A simple apron did the trick; their feathers were able to grow back with ease, and they looked beautiful in the meantime. Additionally, chicken aprons (or chicken saddles, as some folks like to call them) protect the hens' backs from the dreadfully sharp claws and spurrs of roosters. I keep aprons on my ladies when they are in molt too. Every little bit helps!

I use vintage-inspired fabrics that warmly evoke the images of chickens in vintage storybooks. If I could dress my hens in bonnets and pinafores, I really would. But as I cannot, these lovely back aprons definitely do the trick. Plus they are functional (: They are also reversible and easy to put on. Some of mine have been in use, non-stop, for the past 4 seasons and they are still going great. They are sturdy, constructed with three layers of breathable fabric and strong elastic for fastening.

Size small, medium or large, they'll fit any hen who needs one! For more info, kindly pop over to my etsy shop.

  1. Well this was my smile for the morning! I have never seen such a thing, but it does make sense. We don't have a rooster, so don't have to worry about that nastiness, but hens can be horribly vicious once they taste blood!
