HI! How wonderful for you to takes in these little guys! Lots of work, but so worth it.
I am sure somebody will give you a better, and fuller answer, than I will give. But my thoughts were TREATS and an inside potty option, too. Not sure where you live, but if they have been shaved down and itís only been a month, they might still get quite cold when taken outside. My little girl has the option of going inside or outside and that has worked well for us. She gets a treat for going inside and not eating her poop! LOL!
Treats are a wonderful thing. She is very food motivated, so when she does something that makes me happy, she gets a treat. Poops right where Iíd like her to poop in a short amount of time, she gets a treat. But then, she also gets some play. Donít have them poop and turn around and go right back home. Theyíll figure quickly that going to poop/pee will end their outside fun, so theyíll make sure to drag it out.
I donít understand the diapers.. Have you tried having them in a small area, like enclosed in an ex-pen area, just as if they were puppies? That might also help in making them feel more secure. And will get them used to inside pottying. And remember treat, treat, treat to reward the right behavior. And lots of praise. Best of luck to you all. Itís a wonderful thing you are doing.
