We have a little frizzle cochin that had a totally naked back and shoulders so I bought her a chicken saddle/apron with shoulder protectors. She has been broody but there had been some nest "arguments" so I decided to put it on anyway. Wellllllll it seems this is a new way to break a broody. Everyone is freaked out by the ugly banty with the new clothes. Two silkies have left their nests (immediately taken over by some braver hens) The little naked frizzle is running around the yard in a tizzy and even my humongous BCM rooster is terrified of her. Everyone runs when they see her coming. The darn thing is even camoflauge colored. Has anyone else had their chickens reject a saddle? Do I just leave it on and let them calm down? She really needs her back protected desperately and HATES being confined. ARGH!!!
