    So our chicks are about 3.5 weeks old and we take them out of their box at least 3 times a day and hold them. We like to walk around with them in the house and just enjoy them. But they poop so much! Are there diapers or something that I can attach to them?

    yes, there are chicken diapers, but I find them a lil bit weird. I used to do the same thing when my chickens were that small. All we did was lay down dome newspaper in the area they wanted to run around in an let them be. Good luck!

    There are chicken diapers out there...not sure they sell them for chicks though. I've always thought the diaper idea was um....unnecessary. You'l be good just carrying them around with an old towel wrapped around them.

    Thanks - we've been using the towel idea and it's worked out really well!
