I have ordered a saddle from you, in the hope it helps.

Thanks for the advice! :-)

Please don't laugh.

I need a really big and quite long saddle for my Rooster... He is a big Rhode Island Red and around 6 months ago he molted and lost all his tail feathers. Just as they start to grow back the girls peck at him and draw blood and then ......... you know the rest.

I need to protect his tail, or lack there of, so the feathers can grow back... Is this achievable.

You could try separating him from the other birds until his tail grows back.

Yes that would be the easiest option, unfortunately I dont have a spare pen for him. Might have to make his a custom-made one that covers his tail.

In some cases you get get away with a piece of duct tape on the problem area for a while if it's in an odd spot. You just have to peel it off carefully later to avoid damaging the new feathers.

Could be the best option too.

Edited to add, but, I do empathize, & understand that sometimes other options & adaptation may best support an individuals husbandry methods, with best intentions in mind & due consideration for the birds welfare.
