LH n Yes! That was was the bubble bath story and yes, I used lavender scented dish soap. Unfortunately it was already getting cold and dark out so I opted to plunk Edgar in the bath tub. The hens did not get to see his humiliation that time but making him run a few laps around the pen in front of them does the job as Seminolewind describes. Great cougar pictures!
Seminolewind, that is very interesting about the Polish preferring their pen. Edgar and 3 hens do not like to venture out. When I force them out the hens will nibble of grass a little but do not scratch around. Edgar is on high alert the whole time. Their pen is 8x40', it is completely roofed over due to all the rain we get. I think these few chickens are very uncomfortable exposed to open sky. This has been yet another way to adjust Edgar's attitude, boot him out and keep him out until almost dusk. He is happy to be humble and cooperate in order to be allowed back into the pen. Feather brained roosters....
Gorgeous roos Kathy! I use 'reject' sand in my pens. It has a bit of gravel in it and not suitable for building projects. It is a fraction of the price as construction grade sand if it available in your area.
So glad to hear Colby is doing well Scot!!!!
