    I'm going to get a house pet chicken sometime in the future, and I'm wondering what people think is the best diaper. My geese have diapers from The Goose Mother and Indoor Ducks, that go on over the head and buckle on the tail and back, and they're made to put a baby diaper section in the pouch. These are great, and I like how easy it is to put on (as opposed to another I tried that I had to put their wings and legs into [​IMG]).
    But after wearing the diaper all night their bottoms are sometimes dirty. This isn't a big deal for geese, because they just jump in their pool and get clean, but if that happened with a chicken they would need a bath or something. So is the kind where there's sort of a cup better?
    All the chicken diapers I've seen have that, so is that better for them? It seems like it would get in the way when they sit down, but never having used that kind I don't know.

    So, what do you people with house chickens prefer?

    Note: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't bother posting... I'm looking for answers from people who have used chicken diapers and have an opinion on them, not people saying that chickens belong outside only.[​IMG]

    I've found that makeing your own is the best becuase you know it will fit your chicken. But if you can't make your own Hen Holster is a good brand.[​IMG]
