Chicken saddles are made to protect your hen's back from a roosters nails and talons. When a rooster overmates a hen this can lead to serious and sometimes life threatening damage. We make these saddles to allow feather growth without having to separate her from the flock. These can also be used during a molt in case there is excessive pecking. They are also washable and easy to put on!
These are made with a tough backing and a cotton layer although a fleece backing is optional to help keep your hen a little warmer in cold weather.
Note: This item may come with black or white elastic depending on what we have in stock at any given time.
Small - 4"- 5" Long Medium - 6" - 7" Long Large - 8" - 9" Long

I recently ordered 6 of the standard size Flames Hen saddles for some of my Australorp hens as the rooster is a bit overly amorous. I am very pleased with the quality and fit. Everyone who has seen the hens or pictures gets a big kick out of them and comments on my fashionable chix. I am going to place another order this week for the rest of the hens.

I have several of these saddles. This one makes my black minorca extra snazzy... while her feathers grow back

After 20 minutes of trying to get Pearl to put on her spiffy new backways apron, I had to change tactics! This is doing its intended job. It's great.
