    So I have a weird question: Can chickens be potty trained or litter box trained? if so how does one go about doing so? Just thought I'd ask [​IMG]

    They can be trained to poo on command the same way you train a parrot to do it (yep, plenty of parrots are potty trained too), though some have them do it on command only and some have them do it in a special place, like newspaper or something. Chicken diaper would be tons easier. Check out "Everything Else for Sale", there's usually someone that makes the hen saddles there that also makes the diapers.
