    If you don't want poo in the living room, maybe you could put them up on the bed... probably would be warmer and softer for them.

    [​IMG] Yeah. I keep hearing that full-body chickenpoo wraps are all the rage for younger-looking skin...[​IMG]

    I felt the same way about the living room poo, so I just took out one @ a time & interacted with them while they roamed around on a large towel. Keep tissue nearby for cleanups, then work your way through the flock, washing the towel @ the end. It actually wasn't very messy @ all, even though my 2 kids were involved too! LOL If you sprinkle a bit of feed on the towel & sit down with your legs forming a barrier, it will help them want to stay on the towel. There's no diaper for lil chicks that I'm aware of. Hope this helps! :eek:)

    I bring my girls out in my bedroom every now and then, they pretty much stick to perching on my arm, but when they do wander I always have a warm towel on hand for any accidents. Usually do one at a time as well to avoid any missed poops lol

    You can set up a barrier around the living room like , section off where you want to pen them up and let them wander lol......OR you can just scoop them up when they have that look in their eyes, like im going to drop a bomb! JK haha...

    Secondly I wouldn't leave it alone roosting on your dog...the dog may decide to make a snack out of the chick.
