Did you know that you can actually buy chicken diapers on Amazon and on Etsy? Various companies and individuals are selling and designing them for the rapidly growing community of pet chicken owners.
In wealthy cities like San Francisco, chickens have even become an unlikely status symbol, with poultry owners going to unimaginable lengths to care for their pets. Certain chicken owners have hired “chicken whisperer” to consult on their pets’ comfort (to the tune of $225 per hour). These nouveau livestock enthusiasts have also been known to invest in personal chefs for their birds, and some have even installed smartphone-enabled, motion-detecting coops that control ventilation, temperature, lighting, and security from afar (ballpark cost: $20,000)… So is it really that surprising that chicken diaper sales are through the roof?
