Well I spent much of this morning sewing a chicken saddle out of an old flannel shirt for my smallest hen, who has lost a lot of feathers from my rooster. (Many thanks to those who have discussed how to make saddles on this forum by the way! It's been very helpful) I just went out and put it on her. She spazzed out, as expected, trying everything she could to get the foreign thing off. I figured she would eventually get used to it and just forget all about it. The problem is my rooster also didn't like it, and started chasing her around the run pecking at it. It caused a pretty high level of panic all around. She finally ran into the coop and just hunkered down on the floor, exhausted and terrified. So I took it off of her. Should I try again? Has anyone else experienced anything like this? How long does the adjustment usually take? Thanks in advance!
