    Hey y'all,

    I hope this is the right forum, I wasn't sure which forum would be best to post this in.

    For those who have read my thread "Best Breed of Chicken?", I am wanting to have a chicken tame enough to take places with me and be a "chicken ambassador" of sorts. I've noticed a lot of stigmatism with chickens and would like to change that.

    I've ordered my chicken ambassadors, and now I'm trying to work out all of the technicalities of taking a chicken places. I think the best way would be to put a diaper on the chicken, along with a harness. All of the diapers I've seen go under the wing and around the chest, but I feel like that would be a lot in conjunction with a harness. So, my question is, does anyone know of a diaper that attaches to the harness? If it's possible, I would like it to be minimal, with luck people will be holding and petting this chicken.

    Also, if anyone has reccomendations for a harness, that would be much appreciated. I've seen the chicken harnesses, what do y'all think of them? They seem bulky to me, but would it be more comfortable on the chicken? Currently I'm thinking of a harness similar to a flight harness for parrots, they look like a nylon dog harness just bird sized.

    I would love to hear people's thoughts on this, and any tips they may have. Putting a chicken on a leash and taking it places is completely different territory for me, but I think it will be a blast.:)

    Thanks everyone!

    Oops, this is definitely not the right forum! I was sure I was in the "raising backyard chickens" forum. Sorry! I'll go create a new post there. Dos anyone know how to delete this thread?
