    I
    think that chickenmomma is an excellent and very caring person! I would love some chicken diapers, but I don't have a clue where to buy them nor can I make them. Some of the comments are very negative, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Does anyone else disapprove of chicken diapers like these anon folks do?

    I think they are cute. The people that have problems with them are jerks.
    Just my opinion...

    Plus those nay-Sayers have never had house chickens.

    Check in the BYC Auction (BST) area, lovmychix or some similarly named BYCer makes chicken diapers very reasonably.

    While I would never have a chicken living in my house and therefore never need a chicken diaper, why would I care if someone else wants to put a diaper on their bird?

    I wouldn't have a chicken in my house, but then, some people think I'm weird because my cat has a sweater. [​IMG]

    Please tell me you have pictures of this. You must.

    I'm not at all opposed to diapers, and I actually diaper my own Silkie hen. Since most of their comments were removed, I don't have the chance to read why those people feel the way they do, but I don't see any possible problems with it. If someone has a problem with it they should keep it to themselves, like Potterwatch stated above. Like Mother always said; "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

    I believe these folks invented diapers for their geese: http://www.thegoosesmother.com

    Many have places to put a leash on for walks. I think thats mostly for ducks. Cutest one I ever saw was a runner duck with a Gingham dress named Leah..... Duck diapers have a spot in them for a mini pad for moisture absorbtion. I dont know about Chicken diapers. I suspect once you get one it will be something tat is easy to make.

    Good luck.

    I'd never have a house chicken either, but I certainly don't care if others do. Sides, I put preemie diapers on a cat for several years. Yes I did! [​IMG] She had megacolon and would 'leak' due to constipation and the drugs she was on so the little cat wore a little preemie diaper with a hole for the tail. So if I can put a diaper on a cat, nothing wrong with putting one on a chicken IMO. [​IMG]

    The first and the orginal chicken diaper. Custom made to fit the measurements you supply of your bird, in your choice of fabric. The most reasonably priced chicken diaper I have seen.
