Getting Dressed For a Date

This evening I run up a chicken saddle for one of the chickens

 The two cockerels were being a bit over amorous with her and she was losing the feathers on her back.

 I had to wait until it was dark and snatch her off the perch to get dressed
She screamed the place down.
I did spot another one with a bald spot so will run up another saddle tomorrow for her.
They will keep them on until there feathers re-grow.
I will get some better photos of them sporting there new outfits

  5. Why do they always scream when we're trying to do something good for them? Reminds me of toddlers sometimes. LOL

    1. It was either buy them for £24 or make one, having lots of fabric to hand it only took 15 mins to make.

  7. Your hens are lucky, such pretty outfits to protect their backs! Not to mention the practicality of the saddles of course, this is great.
