Woman Discovers Need For Chicken Diapers After Daughter Keeps Bringing Chicks Into Her House, Turns It Into A Business



Urban chicken keepers are on the rise, as people seek a more ethical and nutritious source of fresh eggs, as well as loyal pets and a closer connection to nature in the urban jungle.

Because many of these small-scale chicken owners form a close bond with their backyard birds, they sometimes like to invite them inside the house to join the rest of the family. The one problem with this is: the poop. Chickens poop several times a day, so poop on the carpet is pretty much inevitable unless… You can put a diaper on your feathered friend.

Julie Baker, founder of Pampered Poultry, saw a Youtube video of an indoor chicken wearing a diaper-like contraption and loved the idea. She set about making her own fashionable designs with the help of her daughter. “We started about 10 years ago,” Julie told Bored Panda. “It was borne out of necessity as my daughter was always bringing her chickens in the house. We never imagined the product would resonate with so many backyard chicken keepers around the world.”

“Our customers range from hard core indoor chicken keepers, to those caring for sick or injured birds, to the social media crowd who just love interacting with their birds and sharing with friends and family on the internet. You might not think it, but chickens have fascinating and complex personalities.”

According to Julie there is a phenomena known as ‘chicken math,’ which loosely translates into people thinking they need around 6 birds, but over time find themselves with 30 and a new coop. “There are so many colors, breeds, size, egg colors.. and they are really easy to keep, so you really are never forced to limit yourself! Usually it’s the husbands who set the limit,” She said with a chuckle.

All the diapers are handmade by a group of women in the Dominican Republic, while the designing and order fulfillment is done at Julie’s workshop in Claremont, NH. “We sell between 1,000-2,000 a month,” Julie told us. “I love to shop for fabric and am always thinking of new ways our customers can interact with their beloved pets! The diapers are machine washable, so they offer pet chickens many hours of play time exploring the house and enjoying life inside with their families.”
