When I was sent a chicken diaper to try out I wasn't sure what to expect. I've had chickens in the house before. Sometimes sick ones would have a quarantine box in the house for a few days or even a week. Other times youngest son would just bring me one of his favorite chickens to visit. It was nice having them sit there on my lap all cute and soft, just enjoying being petted. Unfortunately there was the poop to deal with!
She did poop while wearing the diaper in the house, but I didn't even know until I took the diaper off of her and saw it inside the pouch! I also tried the diaper on one of my younger Silkies. It was a little tricky with all those fluffy feathers but because the diaper came with a handy instruction card, we soon had it fitted on her!
She was also just fine with it after a few minutes. She stayed in the house quite awhile and we really enjoyed her visit! The diaper kept the poop off the floor (and couch!) All I had to do to clean up was shake the diaper out over the toilet and flush it all away.
So, will a chicken diaper work for you?
- If you have a chicken you want to live in the house as a pet? Yes.
- A chicken in a quarantine cage in the house? Yes.
- A kid that likes his favorite chicken to hang out with him inside? Yes.
- Want to bring in a chicken to show visitors how awesome they are? Yes.
