    I think there is someone on the forum who raises indoor runner ducks in Chicago who also sells duck diapers, but sorry, I don't remember the user name. Try doing a search.

    I tried making one for my goose, but he wasn't too happy about it. I gave up because I really have enough space outdoors that I know he was ultimately going to the an outdoor goose.

    Her username is nettie. I don't use them, but I know she makes great quality diapers, and everyone loves them! Her website is www.indoorducks.com

    OK, I've got to ask this ? - What stops the rear of the bird from getting all coated in poo when its in a diaper?

    Quote:You are right about this one. This means changing every 4 hours and never leave the bird in for extended period. The diaper must be off at night and the bird needs a bath after the thing comes off so nothing bad will grow around the vent. Diapers sound cute and tempting, but they are not natural to any bird. The bird also need to get used to it and that can be an issue with grown up birds.

    you are supposed to start them when they are babies so they get used to it. i looked at the website for indoorducks.com, and they also have leash harnesses to walk your duck and i find this one funny [​IMG] ....shoes for ducks and other poultry!! that i would never do. there is also a nylon carring case and clothing for ducks and geese [​IMG]. the things people do to their poultry. but i guess i'm gonna fall into the "crazy" catagory using the diapers.

    The poultry shoes are a great product for ducks, as it prevents bumble foot during walks. They're not crazy, just people caring about the safety of ducks. [​IMG]
