Out of the Loop

I guess you just never know what your going to find when you follow Homesteading Blogs. Today at Backyard Farming the title of the post is chicken saddles.....? A WHAT....? Yep, chicken saddle.... Still no idea what it was I went as directed to Louise's Country Closet. While looking at the chicken saddle I found out that if a rooster is to randy he can hurt the chicken or if another hen is bitchy then it can attack. WOW! Who knew this stuff and didn't tell us Urbanites.... Never in a million years would I think that you had to dress your chickens to protect them. 

So glad I don't have chickens yet or they might not be at the height of the fashion world.... LOL!

I've been thinking of getting or making a couple saddles for my hens. The rooster has been rough on a couple of the smaller hens and they are looking quite bare on their backs. Maybe when I get back from vacation I'll try to whip some up. I don't think they need to be too fashionable.
