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™.
