    Can you potty train a pet chicken? I let mine in sometimes. They make chicken diapers at Meyers but that's messy. Let me know any ideas.

    Chickens are pretty smart and need more credit than they are given. I have never tried potty training before with poultry, but I have seen them do amazing things. With enough work, I believe that they can be trained to do many things, including using the toilet!

    Good luck in the training! If you do succeed, keep us posted! You might keep a journal and even take pics. This would make a wonderful thread!
