    Ok so wasn't too sure where to put this, so I put it here. If there is a better place to post it, please let me know!

    So I want to know, from people with experience, what is the best chicken diaper out there? I have a little bantam that broker her leg a couple months ago, and she spends a lot of time in the house. She can't jump very high, so I have her in a little enclosure that is about a foot high, and I keep the bottom covered in newspaper and puppy pads. However, if she REALLY wants out, she can jump out. On days where the weather is bad, or days when I am home, she is usually inside. In the bedroom she has a clear rubbermaid she sleeps in at night in a computer chair. But I would really like to give her more freedom. I just gave her a bath this weekend and she is beautifully fluffy and clean, but of course her floofy feets gets all funky as soon as she steps in a poop.

    Anyone have any suggestions or any links to share? It would be greatly appreciated!!!

    My friend has had house chickens over 25 years - various breeds but usually silkies. Now she has silkie & 2 seramas. She has never used diapers, just quick to pick up after them with rag and disinfectant. Her house does NOT smell.

    I think you will get a lot of responses if you post at " people with house chickens." Very good thread.

    Pampered Poultry has excellent ones. Great design, excellent quality of material, sizing charts are great and the diapers are pretty flexible anyhow. Their hen saddles are excellent as well.
