Did you know aprons are made for more than just moms in a kitchen? Chickens wear them too?
This week the Hall Heritage Homestead is proud to present Chicken Aprons!
What is a chicken apron you ask?
A chicken apron slides around the wings of the hen and lays across her back protecting her feathers.
Often times roosters get a little randy with the girls or he may have a favorite hen. As a result the hen’s feathers become damaged or their skin can be punctured by the roosters feet. This is especially true if you have more than one rooster in a flock.

Now if you don’t have roosters at your homestead these aprons may not be a top priority. But they are so fun you’ll want them for your girls just so they can look pretty foraging when they free range!
Patterns selected reflect a old farmhouse feel and are a timeless item for any homestead.
Each aprons consist of three layers. The top layer is made from ticking, printed duck fabric or furniture grade fabric for durability. The middle layer is interfacing for added protection. The last layer is cotton for comfort-ability. Each apron has a 1/4″ elastic running through to wrap around each wing so the apron stays on the bird.
4 aprons come in a set and the material may vary. Included is one small, one medium and two large aprons. A small size will fit most Silkies, Polish, Leghorns, etc. A medium size will fit Barred Rock, Rhode Island Reds, etc. And a large will fit Orpington size birds.
These are great additions to any homestead and are wash and wear. A light iron may be needed, but I don’t iron my own clothes, let alone my flock’s.
Priced at just $25.00 for a set they are inexpensive and serve a purpose. These items only ship in the United States. Please remember when you purchase from me, you are supporting the SpoonieChick and the Hall Heritage Homestead.
