High-Vis Chicken Jacket

Omlet's new chicken jackets are great for keeping your chickens warm, dry and clean when out and about on the building site (your garden). Newly rescued battery hens whose feathers are a little sparse or hens who have recently moulted will appreciate the jacket's extra warmth and, of course, it goes some way to protecting a semi-naked chicken's modesty!

It's no yolk that chickens who are involved in the hentertainment business are often found crossing the road. Why they do this we don't know - but if they are wearing one of these chicken jackets they will at least be complying with BS-EN471. If you don't know what that means - don't worry - the key thing is that your chickens will be completely safe while changing a wheel on your car if you breakdown on the side of the motorway.

Keep Hens Safer in the Dark

Worried about your chickens now that the cold, dark nights are drawing in? Don't panic, because the High-Vis Chicken Jacket has arrived. Available in two colours, pink and yellow, or as a twin-pack, this health and safety gilet will make your pets visible on the darkest days, while protecting them from the rain and sleet. This means there's no need to worry about hens wandering into the road.

Quick and Easy to Use

The High-Vis Chicken Jacket is perfect for medium sized hens, with adjustable velcro fastening for a comfortable fit every time. Simply place over the hen's head, pop her wings through the arm holes and fasten at the front.

Insulation and Protection

The High-Vis Chicken Jacket offers great comfort and protection, as well as making hens more visible in the dark. With a breathable, showerproof fabric outer, and quilted inner bodywarmer, your pets will be comfy and cosy whatever the weather. The jacket is lined with NASA-approved Flectalon, for effective insulation, so, although your chickens may not be planning a space mission anytime soon, they will be protected from the biting wind, rain and snow.

Has your hen lost her feathers? Whether poorly, moulting or ex-battery, a garment like this will give her some eggstra warmth, when her feathers aren't quite up to the job. It will also protect her skin while her own coat starts to grow back.

Amorous cockerel on the prowl? This jacket can help to reduce the damage on your hen's back that a companion of the opposite sex may cause.

Great high vis vest - Sam, QLD,

Comfortable fit, excellent product! Beryl loves it :-)


Brilliant! - Liz,

I love the Hi-Viz Chicken jackets! The two new rescue hens are lacking in feathers around their bodies so they keep warm in their jackets now the weather is changing. An added bonus for them is that they are protected from pecking from the other hens as they sort out their new pecking order. Highly recommended.


Great little jackets - Wendy,

Received my 4 jackets and I love them. Not sure my girls share my enthusiasm, they get a bit freaked out at first but they do settle down. They look so cute. Great invention!


- Erica,

Super Christmas present for the girls.


Hi Viz Hen Jackets - Brilliant - Lucy,

I bought these for my hens not so much for the high viz but because we live in the Scottish Highlands and I wanted jackets for some of my poor hens who, thanks to the cockerel's amorous attentions, are totally bald on their backs. I was worried to death about them being cold and some of them were very obviously miserable. With these jackets problem solved. Once the jackets were on and the hens became accustomed to them (which took about 24 hours) they perked up no end and now seem very contented again. The jackets have the added bonus of protecting them from further attention from himself so winners all round. The advice is not to use the jackets as pyjamas but I have been leaving them on 24/7 because the temperatures drop so low here at night. I check constantly for any hen showing signs of discomfort and pick them up and check for fit and rubbing every few days. There are no problems and I am sure the girls are not too warm at night - like I say we live in the Scottish Highlands. I am delighted, many thanks Omlet.
