Chicken saddles are made to protect your hen's back from a roosters nails and spurs. When a rooster overmates a hen this can lead to serious and sometimes life threatening damage. Backs can become bare in what seems like overnight. Often people think they need to trim the spurs or remove them entirely but that is not necessary with a chicken saddle. Why take away your rooster's best defense in protecting his flock when you can get a chicken saddle?
We make these saddles to allow feather growth without having to separate your hen from the flock or having to remove or trim anything on your rooster. These can also be used during a molt in case there is excessive pecking. Our design covers more for better protection. They are now longer and wider with the bottom to curve around the tail and protect even more! We use high quality materials - the patterned cotton or flannel front and a tough duck cloth underneath. The duck cloth has a brushed, softer side to rest against the bare skin of your hen's back and is tough without being thick and heavy so these will still work great in warm weather.
These are the perfect addition to any emergency kit.
If for any reason your saddles do not fit when you receive them, we will gladly exchange them for what you do need.
