    Chicken saddles starting at only $3.99! Price does include shipping - and we send out packages every Monday, Wednesday & Friday - and even most days in between!

    Wing Protectors are only $4.99!


    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.

    I sell regular chicken saddles, saddles with wing protectors, saddles made into a harness and special saddles made from flannel - special because flannel is always so obnoxiously expensive! [​IMG]

    Links: (These have the prices for that particular saddle too)

    When responding to me here, let me know which saddle it is, which page it's on, the size you need and how many you want - that way I can get your order right and out to you fast!

    Also, if you need something custom made, PLEASE feel free to ask me.. so long as it's not large (turkey large) then custom made ones will be no extra charge.

    Here are a few examples:

    Hi, I have a hen that is missing feathers on the upper rounded area of the wing edge, near the body/neck, could a saddle be made with the wing protectors moved up higher? Poor girl needs something till her feathers come in properly.

    I will get a picture of her tomorrow for you so you can see what I need protected and covered, if you are interested in a custom order. [​IMG]

    Our hens' backs feathers are sure getting torn up. Can you tell me how best to measure for saddles? I would love to order a bunch from you!

    Hello! [​IMG] Measuring is pretty easy. It's just from the base of the neck, to the base of the tail. From there, you can pretty much guess which size you need.

    My 'how to' with a few pictures so that you can get an idea [​IMG] If you need ANY help, feel free to ask!! I'm almost always here!

    OMG that hen is hysterical. LOL she just threw herself down helpless did she? I had one sorta drop her butt and ran backwards for a bit and then in circles. Finally she gave up and walked away.

    Yep! [​IMG] She only had it on one wing and just fell over, I thought something was wrong until I realized it was the side that had the saddle on LOL She did the same thing on the other side when we were done too. I'm waiting patiently to see one that runs backwards for me [​IMG] Gotta love those chickens!
