I have a rooster that is overly amorous with a couple of the hens. This rooster and I do not get along--he's come at me numerous times and now I'm spooked. My neighbor came over one night this past weekend and helped me grab the 2 hens he's be riding too much, and she put the hen saddles on. Things are going well, but my question is: how long do I leave the saddles on? Do I need to do another night raid to look under there and see how they are healing, if they are getting their feathers back in?? I don't want to leave them on too long. We want some chicks in the spring, which isn't too far off here. Thanks for the input!
