Guys.... You NEED to check out Chicks in a Coop on Etsy. If you need chicken saddles, buy them from her. I ordered 2 for my Barred Rock and my Leghorn, and I only paid $12.99 USD with free shipping! They fit like they were supposed to fit. They have a cute little Etsy shop. It has chicken saddles fit for all chickens. From Serama to Brahma sizes, they have the right size saddle for your chicken. I also got to pick out a design. Which is nice because most ones give you random or it only has 1 pattern. They even have a saddle made of Recycled denim! I would definitely give them a visit, if you are looking for saddles. I will include links to her shop and some of her saddles.

what is the saddle for?
Roosters have "Favorite Hens" that they mate with all the time. Overmating can cause feather loss or plucking. You buy these to put on your hens back to prevent them from plucking their own feathers out or getting overmated. The saddle prevents the rooster from mating with that certain hen. You can also use them if there are bully hens that pluck others feathers or for help with molting.
