As the name implies, this is worn like an apron with 19 pockets to hold the eggs. This apron is not just for Easter egg hunts but more importantly, it can be a useful tool for chicken owners too. It will make collecting eggs more convenient as it also allows easier transport. In addition to the 19 pockets, it also features one large pocket on the side to hold other essentials such as your phone, keys, pen, to-do-list and more. For added durability, the knit apron has a doubled-up strap.
