. . . Better chicken saddles: Why is the Hen Saver hen apron better?
Hen Saver®What makes Hen Saver better®?

The incredible, patented Hen Saver® Hen Apron/Chicken Saddle is a true game-changer in the world of poultry protection!

• Tail Feather Notch: We understand that every chicken is unique, and their tail feathers deserve the utmost care. That's why the Hen Saver® comes with a specially designed notch at the base, ensuring a comfortable fit for your chicken's tail feathers. No more discomfort or restrictions, just pure freedom for your beloved birds!

• Two Strap Styles: We believe in catering to the diverse needs of your flock. That's why we offer two strap styles to choose from. The single-strap style is perfect for your less-active chickens, whether they're confined, cooped, or simply your cherished pets. On the other hand, our two-strap style is ideal for those more adventurous free-ranging or pastured chickens. Check out our FAQs to learn more about each style and decide which one suits your chickens best.

• Superior Stitching: Your rooster's beak and nails can be a little too sharp for comfort. That's why we've reinforced the Hen Saver® with reinforced edges. This innovative technique secures a layer of breathable batting between two layers of rip-, tear-, and puncture-resistant material. Not only does this provide extra protection against your rooster's enthusiastic pecking and scratching, but it also offers potential defense against hawks. By inhibiting the hawk's ability to securely grasp your chicken, the Hen Saver® becomes a guardian angel for both your hens and roosters.

• Shoulder Protector: We understand that protection shouldn't hinder your chicken's ability to move. That's why we offer an optional shoulder protector that provides an extra layer of defense without compromising their freedom. Whether you choose the fixed or removable option, rest assured that your chickens will stay safe and agile.

• Durability: Hen Saver® is built to last, with exceptional strength and longevity. You'll enjoy years of reliable protection, making it an incredible value for your hard-earned money.

​• Winter Warmth: Our Alaska-style hen apron has an underside made with thick, warm sherpa to help keep hens warm in winter without sacrificing the high level of protection you expect from a Hen Saver®.

​• Hawk Protection: Hawks are no match for the Hen Saver®! ​Although we do not guarantee that the Hen Saver® hen apron will protect your chickens 100% from birds of prey (nothing can do that), a DRY, proper-fitting Hen Saver® hen apron does make it easier for a chicken to survive the impact of a hawk's attack and more difficult for hawks to grab struggling chickens, thereby potentially saving your chickens' lives. Add hand-applied predator eyes and inhibit a hawk from attacking your chicken at all!

If you are buying a Hen Saver® to assist you with a hawk problem, please note that some hens will naturally squat in place without struggling when being attacked, enabling a chicken hawk to easily grab her neck and make a quick kill. Also, hawks can pick up small bantam hens and roosters even if they are wearing a Hen Saver.® Please be aware that some raptors hunt chickens by literally diving for their necks, instantly killing them. Hen Saver® WILL NOT help in any of these cases. However, we do offer aprons with our hand-designed "predator eyes" to inhibit hawks from attacking chickens in the first place. The predator eyes are large red and yellow eyes hand-applied onto the aprons, effectively staring up at the sky from the back of your chicken. 

Our predator eyes are the ORIGINAL predator eyes, designed by us with the help of a raptor expert. They are UV-resistant transfers that are hand applied onto your apron.

So why settle for anything less than the absolute best? Choose Hen Saver® and give your feathered friends the protection they deserve. Your hens will thank you, and you'll have peace of mind knowing that you've made the right choice. With a Hen Saver® hen apron/saddle you will experience the pinnacle of poultry protection!

The Hen Saver® is available in five different sizes, ensuring a perfect fit for most breeds and sizes of chickens. Whether you have a small bantam or a majestic rooster, we've got you covered. Choose between the single or double strap models, depending on your flock's needs.

Just wanted to tell you that your hen saver aprons might have thwarted a hawk attack yesterday. Lucy and Ethel both wear them with the raptor eyes just for that purpose. They are my two oldest, slowest girls and a hawk indeed had Ethel on the ground a few months ago (pre-aprons) She was shaken but no real damage. Yesterday I saw what I think is the same hawk fly about 20 feet over Lucy's head and just kept going. Maybe coincidence, maybe it wasn't hungry....or MAYBE the apron worked!!! I'm going with the third option. : ) Thank you!
