    We all know how rough the boys can be on our girl's backs. Help protect them with hen saddles. My saddles are denim backed and I have numerous fabrics available. New fabrics will be posted as I get them. I also scotch guard the saddles unless requested not to. And for most saddles, you can chose whether you'd prefer black or white elastic.

    $7 each for standard/large sized (7" from shoulders to base of tail)
    $5 each bantam sized (5" from shoulders to base of tail)

    I will ship anywhere within the continental US free.

    Thank you! We got two 10 month old pullets last month, they had been living with three Roo's and one of them had a pretty torn up back. We kept them isolated for three weeks until she seemed healed up, but after a week with our roo (and our other 4 hens) her back was getting quite bad again. You shipped the apron same day, fits great, and it's doing the job. Her back is healing up.

    Highly recommended.
