I discovered this morning that one of my chickens is in need of a bath (she had something vile on her feet that wiped of on my shirt and also had some crusties on her behind. I want to make sure that I don't chill her or break her weather conditioning (its 44F right now and we are expecting rain this afternoon). If I stick her feet and behind in warm water, rinse, dry her off, and stick her back outside when she feels dry to me. should that be safe?
Also, my Mom mentioned using baking soda. I told her I would check as I wasn't sure what that would do to chicken feathers and scales?
