    My chicken named goose is very comical to watch and very friendly. At the moment she is our only chicken because we lost our other two to an illness (I think) and a bear attack. Goose loves to come up on our back porch and socialize with our Golden Retriever Duke. She drinks from his water dish and sometimes pecks the sliding glass door for us to come hang out with her. It's pretty evident she's lonely so I'm looking into one or two more hens for her to have friends. But at the moment me and my mom are her best friends. She loves to peck shiny things! Including my moms rings and watch. She comes running to the sound of our voices especially if we call her Lucy. My mom renamed her that (or so she thinks) but I still call her goose. She got Lucy from the old show where Lucy is the mischievous girl always checking things out. Well, that's goose for ya. She loves bread and pumpkins and Happy Hen Treats. Yesterday the door was accidentally left open and she came running in with an inviting "SQUAWKKKK" as if to say "I'm homeee" Anyways I love goose and want to get her some more friends.

    P.S. Does anyone have any experience with the "Chicken Diaper" ?
    I'm curious... How do you get it on them? Do they like it?

    Thanks for reading my Random Ramble, Wyatt

    I had a Cocker named Puggy so I can understand naming a chicken, goose. You might want to check out "people with house chickens," thread some use diapers, some do not.

    My friend has had chicken house birds for over 25 years. She just cleans up as it happens with her towel paper and Lysol spray. Honestly her house does NOT smell. I would think checking and changing diapers many times a day would be much harder.
