A New Twist On an Old (Chicken) Saddle

http://www.motherearthnews.com/homesteading-and-livestock/chicken-saddle.aspx

Chicken Saddle Let’s face it, traditional poultry aprons/saddles don’t make sense to a farm that has to watch profits and losses. At the cost of 4-to-10 times the value of a chick and in the end won’t even hold up to daily use. Nothing more than mere chicken clothes.

Until now. An apron/saddle that ties up all the loose ends and protects your, and the chicken’s, bottom line. It is durable, puncture and tear-resistant (it’s like armour), weather-proof, makes locating free-ranged chickens easier, deters pecking and cannibalistic behavior, helps to protect hens and roosters from each other and even from  predators. Opt for additional predator eye-spots on the product and make it even more effective.

 Old style aprons/saddles have been effective against rooster spurs and claws allowing the backs of the chickens to heal (verse infected). However since they are made of canvas or cloth with elastic  straps, these were not made to last. Starting fresh with an unconventional material, this product eliminates the need for sewing and even clasps. Mud (and other “stuff”) just seems to side right off so no need to even clean these things.

 Whether it’s for the meat bird or the layer, free-range or cooped, hen or rooster (if you have one or not), these animals are your assets and deserve the proper protection at an affordable price. Buy it now at chickenarmor.com for as low as 75 cents per apron/saddle — it works, it’s cheap, enough said.
