    I like to bring my old favorite hen inside the house every now and then to hang out. Of course, she inevitably makes a poo or two somewhere, usually on the oriental rug! [​IMG]
    I want to try chicken diapers on her, but just how hard is it to train an older hen to wear them? I can't imagine she will be too crazy about it at first. Also, since I only bring her in every couple of days, would she accept it more easily as time went on, or would she fuss anew each time I put it on her?

    Depends on the bird...
    Obelisk acted like you were coming after her with Shakenbake.
    Slifer was fine wearing hers.

    You're so funny SpottedCrow! [​IMG]

    My house chicken did NOT like wearing diapers...all I can say is, watch out for those wings! Getting wingslapped in the face hurts something awful.​

    Hee hee! Poor Dorothy; I think I'm going to try. I'll have to promise her that I won't take any pictures, though - she's a very dignified hen.
