    Have you thought of a name yet?
    She is a fashionista! Can't wait to see how she/he turns out to look like.

    I haven't tried training her yet. There's some articles online on how to potty train your chicken. Allot of time and patients. But I plan to give the chicken diaper a shot first.

    Let us know how the diaper and training work please. I have a silkie cockerel (now "Whitney" is a "Walter") and if the town ever comes to tell me he isn't welcome, then I will be moving him in as well. P.S. I wish I lived in Hawaii!
