Product Description

Hen Saver® Hen aprons protects hens' backs from roosters; prevents feather loss and cuts and gashes that can lead to picking, cannibalism and death in both domestic and commercial flocks; cover areas of feather loss and wounds to promote healing and feather re-growth; and provide potential protection against hawks by reducing their ability to grasp chickens. Add Predator Eyes to your Hen Saver and hawks may not attack your chickens at all! Our copyrighted, digitally-printed predator eyes were designed by us with the help of a raptor expert. Our UV-resistant predator eyes are hand-applied.

Unique features that add to the functionality and durability of the apron include a notch at the base to accommodate the hen's tail feathers, two strap styles, finished-seam stitching that secures a layer of breathable batting between two layers of rip-, tear- and puncture-resistant material, and optional fixed or removable shoulder protector.

Our high-quality aprons are time-tested and chicken approved! There are cheaper aprons on the market, but you get what you pay for. Our aprons are the most durable and safest for your chicken. In particular, beware of aprons made from slick or "waterproof material" -- the lack of breathability will over-heat your chicken and the slick material will cause your rooster to slide off, potentially slitting open your hen's sides with his spurs.

Awesome saddles!

I purchased 2 of the one strap saddles for 2 hens the rooster gets a little too frisky with! They are working great!! So happy to see their backs covered and waiting for the healing process! They were very easy to put on my girls and they can still run and fly.

We had a little cochin bantam rooster who was attractive to hawks for some reason. He was attacked two years in a row during the hawk migration (we managed to thwart the attack both times). We got him an apron with predator eyes. He lived three more years with no attacks that we know of. The apron helped keep him warm in the winter, too. I am now ordering one for a submissive hen that is being worn out by the rooster. Her apron will have eyes, too, just to worry any hawks passing by. Thank you for a great product!

Great Product!

I have an assortment of 10 month old hatchery Orpingtons. I bought a couple Hen Savers in the single strap Large size. The Large fit the bigger pullets well, but I am back to order more in Medium for some of the smaller girls. The Large was a bit wide between the smaller pullets'' shoulders/wings, enough so that they could not hold their wrings properly, were uncomfortable, and I don't think they'd be able to fly. I couldn't position it well, so I'm going to get them Medium. If your birds are used to being handled, they're easy to get on by yourself if you put the bird standing on an elevated surface and work with one wing at a time, then adjust it to centered. If you have nervous, flighty birds, it might be easier with two people, but I had zero issues. At first they were a little perplexed by what was on their back, and there was a bit of mild interest from the other birds for the first few minutes, but there were no theatrics. My birds free range on our farm from sun up to sun down, so I'm interested to see how well these will stay on, but I will keep an assortment on hand for replacements because I'm very happy with the quality of these. They're made from a nice weight cordura type fabric like you see in equine products. Well made. I'm not sure if they'll be hot in the summer, we do have humid summers--but it looks like they're in a bit of a lifted position at least when the bird bends over to peck at something, so I think she'll get enough air under there. At least she won't be sunburned. If I find they don't stay on, I will try the version with the double strap, I am just a little uncomfortable putting a neck strap on unless I need to. I don't leave a collar on my dog, and never left halters on my horses for fear of them getting hung up on something...Great product, and SUPER fast shipping!

Best Protection for Your Hens - Period

I have been raising chickens for over 25 years and this is one of my favorite poultry products on the market. I have used these Hen Saver hen saddles for years and my original supply ran out. I ordered new saddles in 2021 and I was pleased that the craftsmanship was even better than before. I raise heavy breeds like Jersey Giants and Brahmas. These saddles protect my hens when the roos get a little too rough and they last a very long time. My original set lasted over 10 years and these new saddles look like they will last even longer. This is a product that is thoughtfully designed with your chicken's health and comfort in mind. I am proud to support an American made product. Don't be fooled by cheap imitations you see on Amazon - the Hen Saver saddles are well worth the money.

Best hen protectors

I have bought several of your saddles the last few years. They really saved my hens' backs from feather loss, etc.

Most of the hens that needed a saddle were fine without the shoulder attachment, but one hen wouldn't come out of nesting area until I used a saddle with the shoulder attachment to protect her.

These are the best saddles I have used.

I had bought a couple of other brands of saddles before finding yours. They were not made with the same quality, did not fit or stay in place as well as yours. Plus the shoulder attachment option is great.

I have very little trouble putting these on my hens by myself.

I highly recommend your product.
