Some of my hens have been loved just a little too much by my roosters. I have one hen who we call baldy. She is looking pretty naked lately. Actually, quite a few have lost feathers on their backs. While I was looking at Danni's blog about a month ago, I saw something that would help-chicken saddles.
Chicken saddles are made to protect the hen's backs from the roosters claws. I ordered them from someone on Backyard Chickens.
Mine came last week and I put them on the hens with the worst feather loss. Now they are very fashionable and hopefully this will help protect their backs. I always wanted cows, now some of my chickens have cow print saddles. So, I guess in a way, I have cows now, lol!
