    I guess you could use a hen apron and attach a leash... but why?

    i recently made a diaper for my chick, she is about a month, I had originally ordered an avian flight suit for her, but it hasn't come in yet, i just got tired of cleaning up after her. but this is web site i ordered from, and they have a leash option that you can get, also. they're for parrots, but i found a breed that looked similar in size to her and ordered that one.

    i think my shipping issues taking so long is being in hawaii, when i was back on the mainland i'd get things in only a couple days. good luck harnessing those chicks [​IMG]

    forgot to mention they do have an actual harness sans diaper. It's called the feather tether, i think.
