Maybe my diaper needs a chicken.

 Baker says that a more useful product is the "saddle"--a hybrid between lingerie and a chastity belt that protects the female chickens' feathers from roosters when mating. According to Baker:
"A rooster isn't particularly kind to a hen when they mate. He grabs her by the back and pulls her feathers out. The hen ends up with a completely bare back. It gets raw and bleeds a little bit."

Who's to say the hen doesn't like it?

I have a friend that would probably go nuts for this. She would probably spend an entire weeks pay on them!

how about those little rose colored glasses they put on chickens to hide blood on other chickens so they wouldn't peck em to death. that's pretty trippy.

You know what your chickens need? To stay the fark outside.

Oh, those hipsters and their urban farming!

Seriously, you have to expect this sort of thing.

It can be logically inferred from the existence of ultra-chic chicken coops--as more and more greens and hipsters re-introduce domestic, artisanal-scale agriculture to the suburbs and cities, the chicken diaper is as logical a development of the trend as horse-diapers for the horses that pull carriages in Central Park and elsewhere in the developed world.

Pigs roamed the streets of New York City until the 1870s and chickens have never really left town. The arrival of the automobile eventually did away with horse-drawn carts and carriages (the last milk carts and junk dealer carts survived into the 1950s and 1960s in some places), but as the collection and disposal of horse manure became obsolete on an industrial scale, it had to develop on an artisan scale.

So it is with chickens. Chicken guano is one of the most obnoxious substances known to humanity. I have been in old chicken coops that had been abandoned for decades and they still reeked. Some people use it (sparingly) on their plants. It can remove the lining from your brain, let alone your nose.

And so we now have chic and hip diapers for chickens. Ta da! The aristocrats!

It looks to me that they have been clever enough to print some of these diapers with feathers so it doesn't spoil the look of free-range chickens.

Chickens need butter and hot sauce.

"there's now a niche market for chicken accessories, including diapers and even lingerie. "

And that's when I stopped reading.  NO. Just no.

Eh.  I've seen parrot diapers for when they're out of their cage, so I guess this is the logical extension.
