Oooh, I'd take it :D
To answer that, no mine do not experience that issue. That said, I only have one cockerel who's ever experienced a saddle.
If you are interested...
It might seem crazy what I'm 'bout to say. Well, sunshine's here, you can take a break. I'm like a hot air balloon, I could go to space. With the...

So many questions.

It would help if you included pictures of the rest of the bird, too. Written word only goes so far.

Seems someone at the hatchery needs to pay better attention to their job.
