    This is my daughters little chick. She's been bugging me to get her a diaper made but have been pretty busy making everyone elses diapers. [​IMG] She got her little dinky diaper for her chick today and was pretty happy. The chick ran all over the house and I didn't have to worry about her pooing. The funny thing is that when we took it off she hadn't even done anything. Any other time she poos. [​IMG] That is hubby in the background not very happy. He doesn't like chickens in the house. [​IMG]

    Also any input on what this is? We got it as Assorted Bantam.

    She fought this one for a few minutes and was fine. I wish I had hardwood. [​IMG]

    I was thinking they were d'uccle too. I have a whitish grey one too.

    Porceline d'Uccle? Oh you lucky lady! We had to pay thru the nose just for hatching eggs! She's a cutie though. Our Buff Orpington could take her diaper off in minutes so we gave up. Since we got rid of our roo she has been re-introduced beck to the flock with no problems!

    I thought they were cochins when we bought them. I'm glad they are d'uccles. I already have cochins so something different is nice.

    She's a sweet Mille Fleur d'Uccle pullet! You're lucky you have a girl. My roo is the meanest thing. [​IMG] Very pretty breed, though. And yes, your White-ish grey is a Porcelin d'Uccle. (That's spelt wrong.)

    These were straight run and I believe I got two pullets. We just had to get some bantams. I need to post a pic of my other one. She has fluffy feathers under her beak.

    How is the diaper hooked on? haha

    I really want to have one, because I want to let my chicks run in the house. Right now I put on an old sweater and they practice flying from a small table (about 1 1/2 feet high) to my shoulder and then I carry around a paper towel....

    Check out my siggy. It has a thread that explains how they go on. I love having my chickies in the house.
