@Skink - I kept aviary birds - parrots, cockatiels, canaries, English and American budgerigars in-house (not all at once but over the years) and I've had indoor cats and dogs. By far, our favourite are the chickens and they return kindness with eggs for our breakfast! And their poop is very useful for our raised garden beds! No other pet has been as entertaining and useful as our chicken flock has been.
I couldn't see spending $15 to $25 for each chicken diaper no matter who manufactured them. I made my own diapers by following chickenmom's "How to make chicken diapers" pattern on youtube. Every diaper I made custom fit each chicken -- because even Silkies have different size requirements - just a few ounces difference in weight and I had to use a different measurement. Then I made diapers for the Leghorn pullets and the Ameraucana juvenile. I couldn't find my sewing machine during our house remodel and actually hand-sewed one of the diapers. I modified chickenmom's pattern by adding a plastic pouch and lined the pouch with a strip of absorbent paper towel.

There goes the Silkie in her diaper - Silkies are so fluffy you can only see the backside of the diapers on them.
