Not one local feed store has aprons for hens, they can order them and cost almost $20 a pc! SO, someone gave me the idea of using some tough material or an old pair of jeans. I do have an old pair I can cut up. I thought about cutting the legs so it was easy I just do not know how to sew. Has anyone made their own? Would clasps or velcro be best? I just want to get the right supplies today because my Roo is tearing up my girls' backs and wings. Also, others that have aprons on their birds....how often do you wash them and will it create anything for mites or parasites? I just need information really on hen aprons! Thank you!
