Hen Aprons

June 30, 2014

What is a Hen Apron?


A hen apron, or chicken saddle, is a device you put on your hens to protect their backs from roosters during mating. When roosters mate with hens, the hens often sustain feather loss and cuts and gashes on their backs and shoulders that can lead to infection, picking, cannibalism and death.


Hen aprons can be used on all of the chickens in your flock (both the hens and roosters) if they tend to peck at each other.


Once your hen suffers feather loss and wounds on her back, she must either be removed from the flock or have her back covered to prevent further damage and infection that can potentially lead to her death.


A good hen apron like the ones we offer can establish a high level of protection for your hen against injury and afford prompt healing and feather re-growth to take place in your chickens with existing wounds and feather loss. The aprons are adjustable, too, allowing for a a proper fit.
