Tiny Santa Hats For Chickens Are Ridiculously Cute

The perfect accessory for the tiniest holiday partygoers!

Have you got your Santa Claus hat ready for the holidays? What about the smallest creatures in your life — will they be properly decked out in holiday gear this year? If you’re in need of some festive small-scale accessories, you’re in luck. Washington-based Etsy shop owner Erika Lindquist (HandMadeAmErika) sells a miniature Santa hat for the tiniest pets — and we really are talking “miniature.”

This tiny hat is the perfect size for a hedgehog, ferret, rabbit, iguana or even a chicken, if your feathered friends are keen to get into the Christmas spirit.

The itty-bitty headpiece is red and glittery, and it comes with a delicate elastic chin strap to ensure it stays in place. The base is a little larger than the size of a quarter, and the seller guarantees that it’s “built to last!” If you’re unsure of the size, she suggests test-fitting your pet with a quarter on top of its head to get an idea of how the hat will fit.

The store has a 5-star rating, and a quick look at the reviews reveals lots of happy pet owners, along with delightful photos of their fashionable pets. One customer describes the hats as “totally adorable” and shares a photo of her bearded dragon rocking the red glittery item.

Several reviews rave about the hat for chickens, and even an albino python is seen modeling the pint-sized version of the classic cap.

Unsurprisingly, the mini pet Santa hats have been a huge hit and are temporarily out of stock. But Lindquist is working hard to meet demand, and she promises that more hats will be available soon.

The hat costs $9.99, and you can also place a custom order for a different size or make other special requests. Matching accessories are available, so if you want a red glittery bandana for your rabbit or maybe even a cape for your iguana, you know what to do.

If the idea of mini pet hats is the best thing you’ve heard all year, there’s more good news: Lindquist offers a huge range of hats in other styles and materials, from silver birthday hats with numbers to clip-on rainbow hats. Adorable!
