I didn't follow that pattern I followed ChickenMom's pattern on YouTube. Here are a few pics. http://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/70328_rosieinplaiddiaper_004.jpghttp://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/70328_rosieinplaiddiaper_001.jpghttp://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/70328_rosieindiaper_001.jpg The plaid diaper has elastic straps. http://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/70328_rosieinplaiddiaper_003.jpghttp://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/70328_rosieinplaiddiaper_002.jpg

For those of you who have made the diaper, can you tell me what the length and width were (before sewing) for a standard size bird and for a Silkie.  I'm just looking for an average on the measurements so that I can tell if my template that I made will come out okay.  Also, how long did you make the elastic pieces.  Thanks in advance.  (Before I drag out my sewing machine)

If you tried both patterns (the one provided and the one on Youtube), which one did you prefer and why???

By the way, THANK YOU!!!  I realize every bird is different, but can you tell us the average measurements of the pieces in the pattern???

I couldn't help you, you just have to get a measuring tape and measure from the breast to the vent, and leave just a little extra to make the poop holding pouch bigger.

this website does a good job of explaining and showing how to make them!  I'm going to measure and make one tomorrow!  :)

It basically says to measure from the chest to a bit below the vent (which will give you the measurement for the "strip" or the front-- then add 3 inches to the bottom of that measurement for the pocket off of that.  Looks like if you add a bit of elastic to the top of the pocket, it will form a nice pouch that should keep the poo off the feathers.  Can't wait to find out!  :)

Here in the UK they are called nappies. Cannot imagine even attempting to put our hens in nappies - the cats would never let them live it down!

 

Our 3 girls do come in, led by Henrietta, but we try to keep them out of the bedroom and drawing room.  We live in a bungalow!  Any accidents are easily cleaned up and if we do have to bring one or more indoors, they get popped in the puppy pen with plenty of straw, water etc.  The cats keep them entertained and the hens reciprocate, all is well and calm and happy.

 

Funny story about our beautiful, and sadly late, Alice.  An Australorp hen, she was murdered last month by a rogue dog.  One day my disabilities decided to remind me that they and I are well attached to each other, so I was having a rest on the bed.  Hearing gentle clucking I spy Alice and Henrietta in the hallway.  Happy that they were ok I dosed off.  Imagine my surprise to open my eyes and discover a hen very contentedly sat next to me on the bed.  I moved to put her back on the floor when she decided to have a quick flap over to my dressing table.  There she stood in front of the mirror, admiring herself!  First she looked one way and then turned to admire herself from another angle.  This continued for a couple of minutes, until I disappointed her and put her back in the hallway. At least she knew why we always told her she was so beautiful, she'd seen for herself. 

 

Just wait until Daisy and Clementine decide to do the same thing!  Daisy is a Marsh Daisy x Light Columbian Brahma Bantam and has the Marsh Daisy colouring with the Brahma feathering, so incredibly beautiful.  Clementine is a rare Citrus Campine, so equally beautiful.  You can imagine the 'conversation', along the lines of "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?"  Henrietta, by the way, is a lovely Barnvelder, who is sweet natured and loves cuddles.  She had her picture in Practical Poultry, with our ginger cat Edward, so has her own 'claim to fame'

Carole M, That is really an adorable story about your hen!  I have wood floors too, but I would not want to clean them up for sure! I'm sorry about the loss of your hen.  

 

 I don't have any house birds, and don't plan on it either.  But I have made the diapers now, and have used them!  But only on birds that have gotten injured and need to be inside the house for rest, treatment, etc.  That would be the perfect time to use diapers!  I made a diaper up and mailed it to a friend who used it on a hen that had broken her leg.  Fit great.  :)  I will say, that this diaper pattern will NOT work on a duck, because she tried to fit it on her duck and it kept slipping off.  It needs a kind of neck ring or something she said.  I don't have any ducks, so I have no idea how to modify this pattern for a duck.  Anyone know??  Anyone made duck diapers??
