    Tried to put Wobs in her training diaper for the first time today - and it was a total disaster! She positively freaked out. I know the first time is always hard, and I used many peas to help assuage the situation, but I don't want her to hate me. She already flips out when I go to pick her up.

    Any fellow house duck owners that have already gone through "potty training" that can offer me any advice?

    It just takes time. They will adjust. All of our indoor ducks needed to adjust. And they did. Be patient [​IMG]. Even our finest Feathered Fashions models needed time to get used to our diapers .

    And what lovely models they are! [​IMG]

    If you have any tips for training, pleeeease PM me. I'm at a loss. I started training her to come, learn her name and be calm when handled since day 3 but I feel like I may as well be trying to train a brick.

    I have 2 indoor chickens and had some diapers made, any advice on how to diaper train them? I tried them once and both started bucking like a bull. Any tips or tricks
