    I've read about folks putting diapers on their chickens so they can run around in the house, etc. How do I do this?

    That's taking chickens a little too seriously I think. [​IMG]

    Achicken can be a sweet house pet. I don't have mine in the house, but there are those who do. People have parrots etc. in the house, why not a chicken? I have a sweet BR hen, Phyn, (pronounced fin) that I would bring in if it weren't for the dogs. I love her like I do my dogs, she is so full of personality. She is a very gentle soul.

    This is one I make when a chicken must spend an extended amount of time in the house or traveling.

    Jojo, an ill bantam of mine, spend over 8 months inside with me we I was treating her with PT. She recovered enough by the following summer that I was able to return her to the flock with little problems. She still had a gimp in her stride by was doing nicely.

    I think even KIDS in diapers should be kept outside or in a barn.

    When I first came to this forum, I figured the diaper thing out right away. What I didn't understand was what chicken saddles were for. Then it just came to me the other day! [​IMG] [​IMG]
