    Hi Folks,
    I sure could use a little help. I need some patterns for Chicken Saddles and Chicken Diapers. There are quite a few online but never having used them before I thought it would be more practical to ask people what has worked for them.

    A friend of mine has a bunch of yard hens and a few of them need to come inside on very cold nights (even with the nice enclosure and heat lamps, etc.) She is one of those types that would brin the horses inside if she thought they needed it LOL. OK, so I guess I am the same way. Anyway, I am the one who Sews and I want to help out by making her the Saddles (for the poor chickens who are getting bullied) and some Diapers for them to be able to roam the house at their leisure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    any patterns can be emailed directly to me at [email protected] or left here and I will do my best to check back often.

    Thank You in advance for your time, patience, and understanding. I know the chickens will thank you.

    Brightest Blessings
    Charlene

    Thank You All, I believe I have the apron taken care of now - I just need to find a good diaper option. Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks for being so kind and helpful. I have read so many forumns and seen many questions about these items. After I manage to create something that works, I will detail instructions and provide free patterns of what I have done in hopes of giving back at least just a little.

    Much Joy to you all !

    Just wanted to provide an update. I was able to find two different patterns for the chicken diapers. I have started constructing my own version - trying to improve on the "universal fit" since there are so many sizes and shapes of the chickens. As soon as we have a bit of a trial run (seeing which versions seem to hold up and function the best ) - then I will post step by step instructions on how to duplicate them. I will also include patterns for a few different types of chicken aprons

    Thank You again for everyone who was so kind to respond with help.

    We wish for you and your loved ones health, happiness, and prosperity.
    Brightest Blessings,
    Charlene
