I mentioned in my last post that I was making a chicken saddle for one of my over-mated White Faced Black Spanish hens. This is a picture of her back – I’m holding her on her side so Bernie could get a picture of it:
She not only has a bald spot, but her usually beautiful black feathers are rather battered.
And here she is wearing her new saddle:
She really strutted around, showing it off
Just look how proud and pretty she is in that new saddle
I wrote a little page on how I made the saddle, if you are interested in viewing it. The saddle has stayed on very well for going on 24 hours now. I’m quite pleased. So pleased, in fact, that I am making six more for my other battered hens.
By the way, I cracked the Small Fry egg this morning. It had no yolk. Frugalmom asked if I weighed it. Yes I did! It didn’t even register on the scale at all – and anything that doesn’t register is considered a Pee Wee. But it sure was cute!
Small Fry eggs and Chicken Saddles – they both make me smile.
