Wanted to share a funny story about the Chicken Saddle.
My Leghorn was plucked almost bare (Bum, back, wings, and more!)
No amount of Blue-Kote helped, and she just kept on getting plucked. It started with the back, then the bum, then wings, and we just kept blue-koting. :) Didn't work....
I decided that I was going to make some saddles, and after much trial and error, I figured it out, and made a few...
I put a saddle on her, and wanted to share the 3-weeks after the saddle was put on photos. lol
She looks like a PORCUPINE.!!!! LOL
She is growing feathers in places I never knew chickens had feathers! LOL
So happy she is going to be her beautiful (although blue-kote-stained) self! LOL
I brought her inside the house, and in a couple of days, the "quills" should start opening into pretty white feathers...
I will take another photo of her then. But for not, wanted to share this... :)
(OK, tried to post photos, but am not having much luck with photo bucket. How do I put pictures on?)
