The droopy diaper is designed to keep the poop away from the bird's feathers. (I have my doubts) It would also catch an egg, which would them be laid in the poop. yuk.

I think ducks would need a different design - their bodies are much longer than a chicken's.

And we get our "Chicken Whisperer" for nothing..... vastly underpaid apparently!!!!

Thank you Dorothy!!!!
you're welcome Jas (lol) - and that is ridiculously high pay.

Doesn't everyone have google to find out what they need to know in any situation about chickens? I guess "certain chicken owners" have money to burn.

Oh, I see. That makes much more sense.

First, those are adorable.

Secondly, I really wonder about the folks who think it's ok to bring fowl inside their homes. Seems risky to me.

They carry salmonella, but their internal body temp keeps it at bay in them for the most part. But if it gets on/in us, our lower temp allows it to run rampant. And then, no droopy diaper in the world can hold that result.

I've heard that they have really weird sex organs, too. (Not that there's anything wrong with that)

Most roosters have internal glands. The mount the female and do a vent smear. Interestingly, the sperm can be stored for up to 2 - 4 weeks inside the female, fertilizing eggs for that long.

It's a great survival technique and is one of the reasons birds have been on this earth for 300,000,000 years.


Ducks and geese have an organ that recoils when not in use.
