These cute reversible hen aprons (a.k.a. saddles or capes) are handmade to protect your chickens from their more aggressive flock-mates. They are made with 100% cotton fabric, hypoallergenic poly batting and polyester elastic band. Care: Machine wash, tumble dry. To get your chicken apron on, just hold your hen in front of you and gently slip the elastic over her wing up to its base, then repeat on the other side. The elastic band is held in place by a loop of fabric that allows it to slide back and forth and makes it easier for you to put the cape on your hen. It fits loosely around her ‘shoulder’ and allows for full movement.
