    Has anyone had any success with getting their chickens to wear these? I bought 1 pair for each of my girls and while they don't take them off they sure do try. They'll keep walking backwards to try to take it off and start flapping around. They don't freak out too much but I can't imagine them wearing them for a period of time.

    Also how tight should they fit?

    Why do you want your chickens to wear diapers?

    I did..but then again only twice..I got some just incase the chicken wants to be in the house..hahaha..
    And over time they get use to them

    That's what I heard..

    Good luck

    Oh and when I tried twice..She just stood there..wouldn't move

    Same reasons as wannabchick

    It would be nice if they could wear them when they want to come inside the house.

    Mine will do that too. She'll have it on but won't move. I guess my girls just need more time

    As someone who had one of my girls living in my kitchen for about a month (postop crop surgery), I found the old paper towel routine worked pretty well. I should have bought stock in Bounty, though. [​IMG]
