    I have 2 hens that are starting to show of 'wear and tear' I think...what do you all think? Do I need to get a couple of saddles, separating the hens from the roos isn't too doable, or are they starting some sort of molt?

    Yep...a saddle is in order. And from my experience, hurry on along with that saddle too because a bald spot will appear shortly, very shortly. [​IMG]
