    I'm thinking about buying some chicken diapers for my sweet, little cochin and was wondering if any of you guys had any input as to how well they work or don't work...

    And, I know that in order for the diapers to work, the bird needs to have stiff tail feathers and my cochin doesn't seem to have stiff tail feathers!!! Are they considered rumpless?

    Any advice would be great! Thanks!

    I would think that diapering a cochin is only going to make a smeary (sorry, for grossness)butt that will require multiple washings on a daily basis? feathers are too soft and too curly.

    www.chickendiapers.com is the place to go. I ordered one a couple of weeks ago and love it. Very economical with the inserts and easy to put on....highly recommend them. No messes in my house since I bought it.
