    I had a raccoon attack last night that wiped out my whole flock except for one bird. I can't leave her outside in the coop since its not safe so she'll be staying with me in my room at night for the next day or two while I reinforce the coop and I was wondering if anyone had a pattern for chicken underwear. I've tried to find one online and all I'm getting are chicken underwear related jokes.
    Thanks.

    Can you get a diaper sewn for her in time? You can also put shavings in the bottom of a large cardboard box for her. Netting or some wire over the top will keep her in. Duct tape will keep the top in place. [​IMG] If you have a dog crate available, that's even better. I've also knocked cages together pretty easily out of wire and j-clips, with a tray or box in the bottom.

    I'm so sorry for your lost flock. You must be heart broken. Good luck.

    The diaper was just featured in the May issue of MaryJanesFarm magazine. It's called a chicken nappy. They are for sale on mypetchicken.com as well.
