Butterfly Canvas Saddles for Hens in Brown Rot-Proof Canvas. Handmade in England.
These Butterfly Poultry Saddles, are the perfect way to save damage to your hens when the normal saddles just don't do the job.
Sometimes the cockerel can be very damaging and manages to tear the hen's wing tops as well. The saddles come with extra arms to protect the hen's wings, and this is held in place with a strip of velcro which makes it adjustable for each bird.
Handwash with care. Made from rot-proof, water-proof, durable canvas, strong cotton and quality bias binding.
Medium - 22cm wide x 15cm long, suitable for small hens, bantams and hybrids
Large - 23cm wide x 16cm long, suitable for large hens including Brahmas

Fitting this saddle to my struggling little hybrid hen, Kitty, was tricky, even after dark, but once on, the saddle fitted very well and Kitty adapted to it straight away. Now two weeks later, the saddle is still in place, and Kitty is protected not only from Gus the cockerel's claws , but also all the rain we're having at the moment. What's more, she looks very stylish and has continued to lay well.
Very good would buy again ! Fits very well and does the job, suitable for large bird as suggested. Has not fallen off or caused bird any distress. Only negative is which is kind of expected, the fabric is very stiff for a while.
Very good would buy again ! Very good, well made and fits well
Their customer care was good but they witheld their number and did not leave a message on my answerphone which held up my instructions. I also thought the instructions in the leaflet were not full, as I am new to saddles for hens and they did not mention where the Velcro went which I thought they should. Quality of product excellent Once I figured out what the Velcro was for I was quite happy and so were my hens. I do feel you should be specific in fitting as this is the first time I have had to use them. I am very pleased with them and they were recommended by a member of the Buff Orpington Club.
I am sorry, I wasn't aware that we witheld our number when calling, it shouldnt be the case, and when possible we do like to leave a message (I will contact the phone supplier), we do often get return calls, i havent had this reported before to be honest but will naturally check as it certainly shouldnt be the case so can only apologise. I am also sorry to hear of difficulties with putting the saddles on (have you seen our video on the website, link is next to product image?) but please do feel free to call us if you need any help at all as we dont use any hold message during opening hours, you will always get straight through to us.
5 stars! I ordered the wrong size of a chicken saddle, it was so easy to change via email and they responded very quickly! :) would recommend! Excellent quality :) will use company again
