What are Poultry Saddles?

Why would i need a Poultry saddle?

Poultry saddles have a few different purposes. First they protect your hen from damage by the cockerels spurs. Severe damage can be caused if your hen is not protected as most cockerel’s will have their favourite hens, and with too much attention this can cause feather loss and deep wounds in the hens sides, causing infection and can lead to death. We also find if you have feather pecking issues these come in handy to cover the area that is being plucked out by a feather pecker. Also as you draw near to the end of your breeding season you may find you have some severe molters, and if this is the case, our Molters saddle is a must for keeping them warm, when the weather turns bitter and they have very little feather coverage. As Poultry Breeders we couldn’t find a saddle that stayed on our hens, so decided to design and test them. We now have our design copyright protected, and these are only available via us direct. All saddles come with our fitting instruction sheet.Sizes from Small to XXlarge
