    An over-tread hen. I put a chicken saddle on her and I noticed over the period of about a day ALL the chickens started attacking and biting and chasing her, even the rooster who used to LOVE her! I took the saddle off her and they are STILL doing it! She is constantly being picked on and chased around and has to "hide" up on top of a big rock. [​IMG] Poor girl! She was PERFECTLY fine before the saddle! Now she is sad!!! What do I do!?!?

    Show the others how it feels and put one on them. No really. I banded one of mine and they all had to peck and peck at it so I put a different color on the others. Strange how quickly that stopped.
