    Ok, so maybe I truly am crazy or maybe it's the pain meds I'm on for a foot injury or maye I just love my chickens...


    I want to take my silkie chick to church with me tomorrow. She's less than a week old and tiny. She likes to hang out in my "bra brooder." Any ideas on what I might diaper a tiny chick with? I'd rather not get chicken poo in my bra...should I try just kinda-of lining her "bra nest" with tissue?

    I don't think you are crazy for taking your wee chick to church. Just line your bra with tissue..lol..

    I took few of mine a ride in my school bus so my kids could see them and pet them..lol..warmth came off the heater blower that was coming off the front end of my bus to keep them warm. I drive a blunt nose type so the box was on my dashboard so the kids could see them and pet them..

    i think it's wonderful! just as long as nobody want's to see the chick! lol! you'd be giving them a "peep show"....lol. seriously though, i think you should. as far as diapering, i have no idea how to diaper a chick. i know most of the chicken diapers would be too big of course. i once had a lil silkie who was the only hatchling. and i bought a little dog carrier that you wear (like a front pack). and i took her almost everywhere with me.

    A peep show LOL! Love it.


    My husband thinks I'm nuts.

    Little Miss Priscilla Pearl is out in the brooder socializing with her hatch mates, but I've had her in the incubator and in my bra the past few day. She's a naked neck silkie with spraddle leg (I hobbled her and it didn't work). She's as big as maybe a large cotton ball. She's gettign around quite well. She hops on her good leg and uses ler wing (over the spraddle leg) to stabilize herself. She is sweet as pie. She'll hang out with me on the couch (I have an ankle injury) and climb out and go to my ear and just pee into it.
