Should I or should I not?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,
My orpington has really messed up her rear end again, I have to wash her every couple of months anyway because of this. She is just a few months old so this is the first time I am going to give her a bath in colder weather. I really don't want her to suffer an illness because she wasn't able to clean her rear feathers but I also don't want her to catch a cold by bathing her in this weather. Say if I washed her in warm water and dried her really thoroughly would that be better?

Thank you so much!

You would probably want to keep her in the house for a couple of hours just to be safe.
