    Hello,

    I was wondering if there was any interest in these bags. They are (or will be) made for a pair of bantams or one standard chicken. They come with one or two matching diapers, made custom to size. They will be coming in many different colors. They are completely washable, both the bag and diapers. The diapers work great, we tried them out on our Silkes and Ees. They are our own design, and come on and off easily and are easy to clean. The bags are 3ft by 1ft and about 2ft tall, and they hold two silkies (or other small chickens) or one large chicken (our EE, BO, and BR all fit, and these are some fat chickens) We are NOT selling them right now, we made one bag and diaper for the pics, to see if anyone might want one. We were thinking around $60 for one, including the diaper(s). This is just an estimate. Feel free to PM me or post with Q’s.

    I think that's a great idea! Is there some sort of flap to keep the chicken in the bag?

    Let us know when you work out a hard price. Is the bag easily washed/cleaned if it is soiled?

    This is a great idea! I've been wanting something like this so I can bring my chickens places with me. If you don't mind me being perfectly honest, I think $60 is a little steep, but even at that price I'd still consider it. Let us know what you work out. [​IMG]

    The bag has a zipper at the top to keep the chicken in. The bag can be washed in a washing machine. You just slide out the hard floor out and throw it in. [​IMG]

    The bag is rather expensive to make and time consuming too, its all quilted and lined with cleanable liner. Very high quality. (I think) But I could make it less fancy, maybe skip the quilting, and that would lessen the price.

    So
    High quality that looks great but is expensive OR cheep little bag for carrying your chicken in without caring much about looks. [​IMG]

    Wonder how long it will be before chickens are being carried down the red carpet in their designer bags and diapers.....

    Quote:You might consider using recycled denim (jeans), or canvas, or even fire hose material (See the pants from Duluth Trading Company) as those materials hold up well. The quilted is nice, it is not as utilitarian.
