    I have several hens that are loosing or have lost most of their back feathers due molting and my rooster breeding them. I purchased some chicken saddles and when i put it on the first hen she ran around in circles constantly and the rooster chased her pecking at the saddle. i was concerned she was going to be attacked by my rooster due to her actions and the saddle. any ideas how to help her and the others out. Currently she is completely bald on her back.
