    Hello everyone,

    As i've mentioned in other posts, I am currently creating a new website dedicated to indoor pet ducks. I am creating a store for the page where i will be selling duck diaper harnesses, walking/swimming harnesses, baby duck harnesses, emergancy care disposable harnesses, coats, shoes (for ducks with sensitive feet, or injuries), t-shirts, etc... and may be even custom feed additives and brooder boxes. In order to fulfill orders, I'd like to have a sizing system that makes it easy for people to know what size to get their ducks. I only have made diapers for runners and babies of others breeds. What i need is for some willing duck owners to measure their ducks for me...

    I'm looking for these measurements-
    (in inches to the nearest quarter inch, or centimeters)

    -Tell me the breed of the duck and it's gender...

    -From the base of the neck to the oil gland (or just above the tail feathers.)

    -Around the duck's body including wings.

    -Around the butt end of a duck, around the body, past the legs.

    -The widest part of the foot. (mainly for muscovies)

    I'd like a wide range to help my sizing, so all breeds and genders are welcome. Even geese measurements would be appreciated. Anyone willing to help out by getting measurements of their duckies, I will remember you when my store opens and will offer a discount for your troubles! (The more measurements you offer, the better the discount! or maybe even some free stuff [​IMG] )

    Thanks in advance guys!

    i do make them adjustable, but the size of the diaper pouch varies, as does the amount the straps adjust. There's a big difference between a call duck and a muscovy! that's why i want different breed's measurements.
