    We are available to you nearly 24/7 if you need any help whatsoever. Please PM if you would like my number to talk or feel free to email, as I get them even on my phone so I'm almost always here for you. These ship in 3-5 business days.

    Chicken saddles are made to protect your hen's back from a roosters nails and spurs. When a rooster overmates a hen this can lead to serious and sometimes life threatening damage. Backs can become bare in what seems like overnight. Often people think they need to trim the spurs or remove them entirely but that is not necessary with a chicken saddle. Why take away your rooster's best defense in protecting his flock when you can get a chicken saddle?

    We make these saddles to allow feather growth without having to separate your hen from the flock or having to remove or trim anything on your rooster. These can also be used during a molt in case there is excessive pecking. Our design covers more for better protection. They are now longer and wider with the bottom to curve around the tail and protect even more! We use high quality materials - the patterned cotton front and a tough duck cloth underneath. The duck cloth has a brushed, softer side to rest against the bare skin of your hen's back and is tough without being thick and heavy so these will still work great in warm weather.

    The elastic that runs along the top of the saddle slips over the wing of your bird to hold the saddle on. We've made this easy for you by allowing the elastic to be pulled completely to one side to have more than enough room to put a wing through without hurting your chicken and then pulled through to the other side to put the other wing in.

    These are the perfect addition to any emergency kit and these last a long time with proper care. We've had thousands of saddles sold with very happy customers!

    If for any reason your saddles do not fit when you receive them, we will gladly exchange them for what you do need (you must pay shipping).

    Sizes:
    Small - 4"- 5" Long
    Medium - 6" - 7" Long
    Large - 8" - 9" Long



    Feel free to PM me with any questions or to place an order!

    We measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail for the length and how far we want it over their sides. If you need more help measuring, please feel free to leave a message here! Also, if you need a custom one don't hesitate to contact us, we are happy to help at no extra charge!

    Hi-
    I am interested in purchasing a bulk order. The Central Louisiana Poultry Club will be hosting first show April 20th. I am looking for fun things to put in some baskets to raffle off. I thought I might check out what some of the BYCers have for sale to help promote the chicken world :) Do you have any large volume discounts or packages available?

    Placed an order on Christmas Day through the website. I can't wait to get them!! Sooo excited.
    After I placed the order I had a thought - does the scotch guarding make them water proof? It rained all day yesterday and was COLD. I'd hate for them to spend the day under a 'wet blanket'.
