TIPS FOR USE
While each hen reacts differently to the sensation of an object on her back, many will attempt to flee from it. Attaching the Hen Mating Saddle™ is best done at night. Sleeping with the saddle on allows the hen time to become familiar with the sensation.
Unfasten saddle’s snaps then get hen from roost. From a seated position, place hen in lap with head facing you and legs dangling between yours. Rest her keel on your lap without squeezing her body. Hold legs securely by squeezing gently between yours.
Place saddle denim side down on hen’s back allowing elastics to drape over top of wings alongside her neck. While holding end of first elastic, lift one wing slightly and bring snaps to meet on underside of saddle. Secure both snaps. Repeat procedure with second elastic on opposite side. Return hen to roost.
Saddle should be worn continuously until feathers have re-grown. Hens are able to dust bathe and preen normally while wearing a Hen Mating Saddle™.
