    Has anyone had any experience with these and do you suggest them?

    Do you intend on using them for roosters?

    I've actually never had to use them, but I've heard from quite a few people that it really helps keeping the hens back protected from the roosters.

    Well, first I would suggest taking care of your roosters spurs.
    Have you trimmed them any time lately?

    I tried one after the damage was done to my hen's back. It didn't help her to molt any faster so my recommendation, hen savers need to be used before the hens' backs are bare. Plus, the elastics in front annoyed her enough that she picked her own feathers out. (She was truly a mess!)
