    It's so the little tiny trained monkeys have something to hold on to.

    Actually they are fabric covers or jackets you put on the hens so the raking of the roosters claws won't tear up their feathers.

    Moodene makes some really cool ones.

    I used them for my girls when my roo tore feathers off their backs during mating. The "saddle" protects them from the claws and spurs. No question is stupid!!

    Correction: there are a few stupid (as in pointless in asking) questions.

    Do you want Chocolate?

    Can I clean your house for you?

    What if I rubbed your feet and made you dinner?

    Are chickens addictive?

    When one wants to learn, there truly are no stupid questions.
