    Has anyone tried to make a saddle to fit a turkey hen? I have a friend who has a over zelous tom and the hen is looking pretty ragged. I wondered if a saddle would fix the problem.

    Yes I made several turkey saddles for our Midget White hens.
    They work great. I made them out of blue jean denium material.

    Quote:Sharon, are they made the same design as a normal chicken saddle or is there something special other than size that needs to be done to use on a large fowl like a turkey? I may try to make one but am not sure of the dimensions to make it so that it will work.
