    This auction is for 1 saddle. You can get more for the same price if you need more. Canvas 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. 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. Great to prevent pecking also. 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. 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!!!

    Chicken / duck / geese diapers. $7 to $11.
    extra small $7
    Bantam $8
    medium $9
    large $10
    extra large $11
    Waterproof liner included. Same stuff used in homemade baby diapers. Pouch is firm and allows "droppings" to fall in easily for easy clean up. Use a papertowel or sandwich bag with double stick tape for easy disposal. Elastic allows for the diaper to move and stretch with the bird and be comfortable. Measure from the bottom of the neck right where the breastbone starts under the belly to the vent. I use strong snaps on my diapers not velcro. Velcro gets messy with feathers and loses it sticky after washing. These are very easy to put on. Put the diaper over the chest, tuck in the wings and snap! U shaped elastic pouch allow the diaper to fit around the tailfeathers. Feel free to ask questions. I can add leash loops for $1. I have been making these since 2008 so I have perfected the pattern to fit. You are better to have a measurement so you get the perfect fit.

    Just wanted to say that I have bought two of these from her and they are absolutely wonderful. One was for a (not so tame) wyandotte hen who had all of her saddle feathers and shoulder feathers torn out by my roo while she was molting. That hen wore that cape through the brambles and in the dirt and everywhere else. It never came off or even moved a little. It also never got stuck on anything. And, most importantly, it looked fabulous! I just ordered another one for a silkie cross bantam who has been having trouble with the cold. She lined it in fleece for me and it is so cute. Very satisfied customer!
