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 larger order. See bottom of page for costs. I find it cheaper for the customer to pay shipping rather than include it in the price. "Carhart" canvas denim backs and cotton fronts. Double reinforced edges. These will not flip up. Denim is just the right weight for protection without being heavy. 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 with the snaps I use. 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. I sew my elastic ends to prevent fraying. 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. $3.00 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!!! The are washable. Please PM me here and not email. BYC emails sometimes get lost in my junk inbox. Thanks and ask any questions you need about anything or want anything special. Been selling since 2008. All my products are used and tested on my hens before I sell so I know they work. My sizes are very accurate as I have many breeds of birds myself. My saddles ship day or day after payment. Thank you!!!

Standard and large $3
bantam and extra small $2

Wing protector $6.00 each




feather growth from wing protector.

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.
