    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!

    Shipping is free no matter what size your order is

    *Every order comes 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. We have two options for our saddles, with the elastic permanently fused between the layers of fabric or with snaps which is an easier, more convenient way of putting the saddles on.

    My girls love their saddles and I have a few that wear them permanently. 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

    Add snaps - Free

    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.

    Here are a few examples: (We also have a few different camo prints)

    Some examples:





    We also have a Butterfly Saddle:



    The Butterfly Saddle is meant to cover more of your hen for better protection exclusively designed by Louise's Country Closet. They are all one piece, nothing is sewn on or removable and are just as easy to put on as one of our original saddles. Not only are these for better protection, but they're cute too with their butterfly pattern! This design is made with snaps for an even easier time putting them on your hen and are measured the same as our original design. These work incredibly well, we prefer using these on our girls compared to a regular saddle. In one case, we had one hen that was extremely bald and bleeding, and within a week she had large pinfeathers already growing in and within a month she was fully feathered!

    Chicken Diapers:

    Chicken Diapers work great for those that have a chicken in the house or even for bringing them on visits to other places (shows, etc.). Our diapers are great because they're incredibly easy to put on, adjustable and have a waterproof liner in the diaper. These are also made with a 'V' shape in the diaper to allow it to cup around the tail of the chicken and provide a better fit. We use industrial strength velcro (which has a high cycle life with over 5000 peels), woven elastic and high quality fabrics.
