I'm gonna go back track and catch up. While I'm doing that, can someone tell me their experience with hen saddles? @Flowerbh, didn't you recently have to use one? I just tried to use one for Rose, Stanley's chosen her as the favorite. Her saddle feathers are definitely getting pulled out, but so far, no wounds, scratches, blood, etc. Yet.
I just ordered some and put one on her. As soon as I let her loose, Stanley attacked it/her and Blanche & Sophia also joined in. I took it off and they left her alone. I felt so bad because they were so mean as soon as they saw it! I assume, if that's the immediate response, hen saddles are going to do more harm than good? Or do they eventually get used to it and leave her alone? Rose is a lover, not a fighter. I have them packed up and ready to be returned to amazon. If they are going to antagonize, I'd rather find a better solution. Thanks in advance!
