Hen House Chic

Share this story

Want to keep chickens in your suburban backyard but hate the trail of poop?

Well, an Australian seamstress, Ingrid Dimock, has come to the rescue with her take on a US design. In essence, she has created a nappy for a happy chicken, or chook as the Aussies prefer to call them.

While country chickens wouldn’t be seen dead in her colourful line of nappies – hot pink being a favourite, it seems her scheme isn’t so bird-brain after all. Called City Chicks, the part-time dalliance has grown into a full-time business.

And for those who want a little bird bling for their pampered pets, she has that too – custom made accessories to make any rooster crow.

Chickens with a penchant for chic hen houses are catered for too.
Chandeliers are must-haves for hens with a yen to bring style to their coup.
