Poultry Saddles

We believe that our Poultry Saddles are the best.

As Breeders, we tried many Saddles, and got so fed up of them coming off we decided

to make and test out our own.

With a unique design we managed to make a saddle which stays on your hen and is adjustable

on the wing strap.These are Copyright Protected so can't be bought anywhere else.

Delivery times, UK 2-3 days, EU 7-10, Anywhere else 2-3 weeks

Saddles are invaluable in the breeding season, especially with the large fowl, as their weight on the hens back can cause a lot of damage, and even death, if you have a very active cockerel.

Adjustable wing straps, with locktight cam buckle fastening, to enable you to adjust the wing strap so they fit snug, and do not come loose.

All saddles come with a fitting instruction sheet.o
