    my goose is slowing becoming a bit of a house pet so im thinking she will need a diaper [​IMG] i know that you can buy diapers for geese but they seem a bit expensive so i was wondering if you think a regualar baby diaper would work well on a goose?

    What you buy for a goose is a re-usable diaper harness with a pouch beneath the vent area. You put a piece of regular baby diaper in the pouch and change it regularly.

    I don't think you can get a goose to wear a baby diaper - at least not for very long. But I would absolutely love to see you try! [​IMG]

    Seriously, I think your goose will rip the diaper into little pieces, and I'm afraid she might accidentally swallow some of the material. That could be very harmful.

    The diaper harness is made from sturdy gooseproof material. I've bought mine from www.thegoosesmother.com, but I found similar harnesses at www.indoorducks.com. Actually, the latter seems like the better choice, because the harnesses there are leak-proof. As soon as my goose is grown up, I will order a cuple of harnesses from there. I might even try the shoes, too, my poor little baby skids around a lot on my hardwood and tile floors.

    Sydney I have made my own using the pattern on the page below. I have enlarged it and made the straps longer for goose use. There are other alterations but making my own has definately saved me bundles. I take newborn and size 1 and cut them in half and line the diapers with it.

    Nettie's stuff from Indoor Ducks is REALLY SUPER AWESOME. I'm such a fan. We got shoes for my rescued ducks to share, and they're made really well and keep the ducks from slipping everywhere. [​IMG] She's perfected her products because she has several indoor ducks herself. We're getting a diaper harness soon and cannot wait. [​IMG]

    Im Sorry, but if you liked your goose you would keep it outside. Its unhealthy to have a goose as a housepet.
