This auction is for 1 saddle.  You can get more for the same price if you need more.  Shipping is usually just a couple bucks for a order.  "Carhart" canvas denim backs and cotton fronts.    Double reinforced edges.  Made with heavy duty snaps I use so they are easy to put on the hen.  They won't come unsnapped unless the hen gets caught up on something.  Don't worry the rooster will not tear the hens apron off.      I have made the ones without snaps and fitting a hens feathers and stretching elastic around them is not fun.  Most of all for the safety of my birds and yours I prefer to make my saddles with snaps.  My hens don't mind wearing these at all and it really helps keep their backs from getting bare.  Any questions feel free to contact me.   I have a lot of different colors.  Ask and I can usually find what you like.    I use these on my hens and I love them.  $2.75 each.  Just because they are inexpensive they are not "cheap".  I buy all my materials in bulk and pass the savings on to you.  Thanks to BYC for letting me sell here I can keep prices reasonable.   I have sold to hundreds of customers on BYC.   I've had people tell me that they bought aprons / saddle from me 2 years ago and they are still holding up!!! 
Options:

Heavy duty Canvas denim (Carhart denim), fleece and denim backing.  50 cents extra  Please state what you prefer.  I can scotch guard if you want. 

If you need one with shoulder/wing protector I make these.    $6.00 for saddle/wing protector combo.  These provide best protection.  See the before and after pics below.   

My design has the most coverage for the best protection.  More coverage at the base of the tail.  Your order will be mailed day of or after you order.

extra small.  serama & d'uccle

bantam.  silkie size

small standard.  buttercup, smaller than standard hen

standard.  RIR, EE, regular size hen

Large.  Large breeds such as giant cochin, Jersey Giants. 


U shaped saddles $3.00.  For the bird who is being pecked around the vent area. 

Been selling since 2008.  My saddles ship day or day after payment.  Thank you!!!

This style of wing protector was designed and tested by me.  It has 2 layers of denim on the top and cotton.  They will not flip up when the hen moves around.   These will stay in place and your hens will still be able to fly and be mobile.  Mine also has elastic in the wing protector part to allow movement.  Others are copying it but I guarantee mine works the best. 

U shaped wing protector saddle.  $7 This is the ultimate body armor for the bald bird. lol.

Chicken / duck / geese diapers.  $6.25 to $13.25 depending on size.  Waterproof liner included.  Same stuff used in homemade baby diapers.  Elastic allows for the diaper to move and stretch with the bird and be comfortable.  Measure from the bottom of the neck right next to the crop under the belly to the vent.  Feel free to ask questions.   I can add leash loops for 50 cents.
