Has anyone tried chicken diapers?

I've sewn a few diapers for my girls and am pretty darn proud at how they turned out. My hens are less enthusiastic. Both have spent a good half an hour flailing pretty wildly trying to shake the garment. How long will it take for them to become adjusted? Anything else I should know about using these?

I'm not big on the idea, if their vent (butt) gets clogged with crusted poo, it can be fatal

Pasting isn't an issue. The diaper is basically a cup that catches the droppings, keeping it away from the vent. And the diapers aren't worn for extended periods, just for short indoor visits.
