    You put it on a hen to keep the rooster from hurting her back. I never made one but I hope someone can help you out [​IMG]

    I made them a couple of years ago with left over fleece. No sewing! They also provided extra warmth as it was a VERY cold winter.

    Quote:Hmm, good idea! Serendipity strikes - I just washed a fleece remnant I picked up at WalMart. I have a Silkie-sized hen saddle that emvickrey gave me when I picked up my auction eggs; I can use it as a guide. Thank you for mentioning it!
