    Has anyone here ever crocheted a chicken apron/ saddle? Anyone have a pattern?? I'm not much of a sewer, and I'm new to crocheting!

    wondered if you ever found a pattern? shouldn't be hard to figure out- i just used a jersey cloth, and cut holes to fit over her wings and tail, but i think a crocheted one would be awesome!

    well, i started working on one, and got to thinking, if the hen is free ranging, isn't there a risk of getting caught in bushes? i made them a couple with a knit fabric, but it seems pretty snag proof. Now, if they don't free range, it probably isn't a problem- will post pics and directions as i do it-

    Thanks so much for posting this...
    I have 8 bare hens and am in the process of increasing their protein and getting that blue kote spray stuff. I love to crochet so I will work on one this week and let you know if the pattern stays on, gets caught, pecked on...... [​IMG] and my big question is if it will interfere with the feathers growing back when they finally get to molt????!!!!!!!

    Quote:Nope. I made duct tape saddles for a few of mine who had their feathers pulled. New feathers grew in just fine. Tape eventually fell off with no problems
