    I posted a while back, my hen has been injured and the woung is not healing. Does anyone know where I can buy a saddle quickly? My pet chicken is out of stock.

    Does anyone here make them?

    Thanks!

  2. I cut a soft piece of material large enough to cover the bare skin, then duck tape it down, the tape will come off by itself and does not harm the chicken. works for me. and duck tape is cheep. [​IMG] marrie

    Sundance, Does the tape hurt the chicken coming off?

    I am holding her in my lap and typing because I am afraid to put her back in. The other one is snacking on her it seems. [​IMG]
