    Chicken saddles are made to protect your hen's back from a roosters nails and talons. When a rooster overmates a hen this can lead to serious and sometimes life threatening damage. We make these saddles to allow feather growth without having to separate her from the flock. These can also be used during a molt in case there is excessive pecking. They are also washable and easy to put on!

    Chicken saddles starting at only $3.99! Extra Small & Smalls are only $2.00! Shipping is free - and we send out packages every Monday, Wednesday & Friday - and even most days in between! *Any order for 2 or more saddles come with a tracking number*

    These are made with a tough backing and a cotton layer. The backing we've recently changed to is just as heavy/thick as a denim material so the rooster's talons can't break through it. They're tough enough to take a rooster yet comfortable for your hen. These are also made with the intention of not being too heavy to avoid overheating. The elastic is permanently fused between the layers of fabric to eliminate the chance of your hen ripping her saddle off or your rooster unsnapping them when he jumps on her back (I've had this happen several times). These are just as easy to put on as one with snaps. Everyone has their different preferences, I just prefer these without snaps because you don't have to worry about the saddle coming off and the ends won't fray. (Personal experience also - mine frayed in a week)

    My girls love their saddles and I have a few that wear them permanently. Even my injured hen, who has no right foot at all and no toes on her left foot, can easily hop around with her wing protector on and it doesn't get caught up under her wings. The girls pictured above are my own cuties [​IMG]

    Saddle sizes are:

    Extra Small - 4 Long x 5 Wide
    Small - 5 Long x 6 Wide
    Medium Narrow - 6 Long x 7 Wide
    Medium Wide - 6 Long x 8 Wide
    Large Short - 7 Long x 7 Wide
    Large - 8 Long x 7 Wide
    XL - 9 Long x 7 Wide

    I have so many that I can't show them all here but I can give links to my website which has them all, and the sizes I have for them. If you only feel comfortable ordering them here, that's perfectly okay! Feel free to leave a message here or PM me.

    I don't always have a lot in stock when it comes to colors because they're constantly changing. So if you want more than one of a certain color, ask away! Some times I do have more of that fabric I just haven't made a lot of saddles with it yet.

    We
    also sell wing protectors, which we have come out with a new design for that works MUCH better! Not only does it cover more, but we add cotton batting in between the layers to prevent them from flopping over! Now when your chicken flaps her wings, they come right back down where they should be! [​IMG] We already have customers that are in love with this design. Please visit the link here: (We don't have a lot in stock but feel free to request them!)

    With Wings: http://louisescountrycloset.com/chickensaddleswithwingprotectors.html

    We are able to do custom orders at no extra charge. We can also make chest protectors for your hen or rooster - a protector for the belly if your chicken is rubbing a spot bald - and even saddles that come down beside the tail if the rooster is tearing those feathers off as well.

    Here are a few examples:
