The chicken bra is also known as a crop supporter.
The reason it was designed and made was to help chickens that have a pendulous crop.
A pendulous crop is a condition that happens when the crop gets blocked and the food stretches it and it hangs down lower than it should.
As more food get’s stuck in the crop, more damage happens and it can become a deadly condition for your chicken.
The chicken bra helps support the crop so that the chicken can properly eat and digest food.
Fashionable and Life-Saving
This can be life-saving for a chicken with a pendulous crop and is something that you would have them wear most of the time.
Removing the support for an hour or two on weekends is necessary so that your chicken can groom herself fully.
So incredibly impressed with the fast shipping! It was a life or death matter with my poor hen, Dusty, who has a pendulous crop.. getting this bra was her last chance at life and this bra was a miracle!! She was near death, nothing was working to make her crop go down but this did!! It took her about a day to get used to it but she has so much pep in her step now. She’s a whole new chicken! I’m so happy with this product. Thank you so much for the fast delivery and the quality product! The sloth print is adorable!Elyse Gutierrez – Etsy Reviewer
You’ll want to make sure you get a few so that you can have one to put on while you wash the other.
It’s fairly easy to put on and you don’t have to pull the wings through.
Just pull it over the chicken’s head and then Velcro over the back so that they can’t peck at the fastening.
You can buy your own chicken bra from AptosBeach on Etsy!
