Our Chickens Got SUPERHERO Capes! (hen saddles)

Our Chickens Got SUPERHERO Capes! (hen saddles)

Our chickens started getting some bare spots on their backs due to aggressive mating by our rooster. To protect their backs, we got them over the wing hen saddles (also called hen aprons). Watch as we attempt to put them on and see what the chickens think about them!
*It is normal for chickens to have an adjustment period with hen saddles. By the end of Day 2, all chickens were perfectly adjusted...including purple :0)
