    Has anyone created a homemade chicken saddle before? If so I would love to get the pattern and make it for one of my hens whose back is raw and sore from mating.

    I was thinking about just ordering one from amazon but they are pretty expensive and it would take so long for something like that to get here.


    Thanks!

    I've never needed one ( only gals) but researched for a friend....there are quite a number of free patterns you can locate in a google search and many don't require sewing skills.

    Okay, thanks I'll take a look. (I don't why I didn't think of that in the first place :p )

    If you stumble across the duct tape one, I wouldn't use that.
    But if you have an old pair of jeans, you can cut one out and make slits for wings and use it now....if you can sew even better.

    My sewing skills aren't excellent but I'm looking for a pattern as we speak.


    I will post a pic when I'm finished with it.
