Chicken Saddles

What is a chicken saddle? Chicken saddles are made to protect the hen's backs from the roosters claws during mating. When roosters mate with hens, the hens often have feather loss on their backs and shoulders.


Mandy over at http://mandysrabbitranch.blogspot.com makes and sells chicken saddles and recently had a photo contest. We won the photo contest with a picture of Olga. A few days ago, two fashionable chicken saddles arrived in the mail.

Just the other day I told a friend about chicken saddles and he was quite impressed. Your chickies look so cute sporting their new saddles :)
