    I read somewhere that people keep chickens as pets in the house sometimes and they actually have chicken diapers. Does anyone do this?

    tons of people do it, personally, it's my dream to own a silky chicken who wears diapers and lives in my house. ahahaha.. My family doesn't believe me tho when I tell them its possible [​IMG]

    but ye, several people on this forum have house chickens..most start off as injured hens who need to come inside to recover..but end up stayin in forever [​IMG]

    It also depends on the temperment of said chicken. Putting a diaper on Obelisk requires at least 4 hands...Slifer would stand still for you and let you put it on her with no problems.

    my chickens wear diapers. they did not like it at first. Shim would stand still, then start to slowly rock back and forth, then tumble over. now she is used to the feel of it.[​IMG]

    This is a picture of 2 Seramas The closest to front. She is my baby and the one that lives in my house. The baby roo is Romeo When they first one on no one likes it. Like a puppy learning to wear a collar and leash. I buy mine here. Chickendiapersbysky.com love the way they fit. I have bought others but by far are the best.. Oh, forgot to say they are water proof.
