I bought some hen savers for my pullets because the roosters are wearing them out. When I put the Hen Saver on my Silkie, she wasn't happy, but she was still functioning. Same with the Delaware. I'm not sure she even realizes it's on her. I put them on a RIR and a New Hamp, and they shut down! They slept in the bottom of the coop, would only walk backwards, and then one wouldn't even come out of the coop the next day. I ended up taking the hen saver off the girl that wouldn't come out of the coop. Anyone else have this problem when using a saddle on their chickens? Do they eventually get used to it?
