America Now Buys Thousands of Chicken Diapers Each Month
http://www.newser.com/story/262927/a...paign=20180806


(NEWSER) – It's touted as "Levi Strauss meets Calvin Klein," and this fine piece of fashion can be yours for just $37.99. Except it won't be for you. The item in question is a chicken diaper made by FeatherWear, and if you've never heard of chicken diapers, well, start by knowing they're a thing. In a piece for the Outline, Michael Waters explores "the booming business of luxury chicken diapers," which are designed to do the obvious: catch chicken poop. (Waters explains chickens don't both urinate and excrete, but simply produce excrement.) The diapers have been embraced by both chicken owners who want to bring their pets inside without sullying the house and Instagrammers who think it's just cute to post a photo of a chicken in a diaper.

As for their popularity level, Waters shares the story of Julie Baker, who with her young daughter Abigail made one for one of the chickens Abigail liked to bring inside from their Claremont, New Hampshire, farm. After they got a few requests from others, Baker decided to have her homeschooled daughter launch an online store as a lesson. Now they're selling up to 1,000 diapers a month at $18 a pop, and the demand has her shipping to all 50 states. Waters gets into the nitty-gritty, explaining how the rise of urban chicken raising is feeding the trend and charting the different types of diapers available (some you just wipe the excrement out of while others require paper-towel inserts). He also touches on a side accessory: the chicken dress. Read the full piece and see photos here.

Interesting, but good grief.

I've brought the occasional hen inside, but diapers and a dress?

No. Just no.

Although,a cage and a drop cloth on the floor has helped.

One point the second link mentioned is how chickens are no longer considered expendable, only good for eating. I like that.

The design of that diaper had me cracking up. It's like the shape of a cup of something to catch the poop and it looks like it would take awhile to fill up!

Well that's just wild!
I've read that chickens are becoming popular as pets, especially in the suburbs.
So it makes sense someone came up with this idea.
I was seeing a pair of chickens wandering around the neighborhood together, but not for awhile.
They were definitely pets, not a couple of leghorns who fell off the death truck.

It's legal to keep them in town for layers.

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

"As The Washington Post reported in March, certain chicken owners have hired “chicken whisperers” to consult on their pets’ comfort (to the tune of $225 per hour)."




Thank you Dorothy!!!!

Ok, where's the "like button"?

I think the diaper is droopy so as to catch an egg?

Would it work on ducks?

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.
