A 25-year-old woman in Jiangsu province has found herself a lucrative gig: making bird diapers.

Zheng Han, a former nurse turned bird nappy designer, made a career change in 2014 that brought her much closer to nature. According to China Daily, she also racks in RMB30,000 a month (not too shabby, Zheng).

Originally, Zheng was designing and selling decorative costumes for birds, but started designing diapers for the feathered creatures after hearing from multiple friends that there needs to be a better way to deal with their pet birds’ waste (no more shit hitting the fan).

After a slow start, Zheng now ships over 1,000 bird diapers a month, which she sells for around RMB20 a piece. Her family has even come around to her new career, despite being skeptical at first.

Judging by a quick scan on Taobao, a flock of new bird diaper designers have setup shop, targeting customers with pet birds who may or may not suffer from irritable bowel syndrome.
