Sanity Check!

I just spent half an hour doing an online search:

"how to make duck diapers"

I'm losing it, y'all!

The even scarier part is that I found a few people that make and sell duck diapers, so now I realize I'm not the first person to think of it. However...I'm not really willing to purchase these harness/diaper contraptions, because I'm just wanting something temporary for this time when they are little and in the house.

Now that I've seen what they look like, I think we'll do a bit of experimenting....

Can't wait to see how they work. We sometimes keep small chicks in the house in early spring but it looks like this spring they will all be outside :)

Hi, DD

I have to say that for once in my life, I'm speechless.

Love to all,

You have absolutely GOT to post pics when you have your ducklings diapered.
Don't know why, but this is giving me a giggle fit----imagining little ducklings waddling around all outfitted in diapers!

Yeah, Thats a post I wouldn't expect! But I bet they will look cute on the ducks, you'll have to show us.

Laura, we had snow this morning! I think we're still a ways from them being outside all the time. I have a brooder in the Little Red Henhouse, but the floor in there is concrete. If I put ducks in there, the mess they make is going to seep out into the main henhouse, I'm sure. I hate to do that, but if I have to, I have to.

Er, sorry Mom. ;)

Lamb, I'm thinking of crocheting a 'cover', lining it with something (plastic wrap?) and then using either some flannel or something disposable. The ones people make and sell use newborn diapers cut in half, or maxi pads. The things people think of!

Thanks K! We'll see if I can come up with something. The other issue is that they are growing SO fast, by the time I get something made, it might be small.

Too funny...

I stopped by via livingourway. We are a homeschooling family living on just a quarter acre in the country. I am doing my best to save our pennies by making things myself and growing our own food. It's a work in progress but enjoying the journey thus far. :)
Your ducks are super cute.
