    Hi everybody!
    Today I gave my brahma chickie a bath!
    Here are some pics that @alexa009 took.
    First I filled up a tub of water, then I put a little shampoo and conditioner in the tub.
    Then I caught Amy, she is my brahma I am bathing.

    So I started out by dipping in her feet, then I slowly put the rest of her body in.

    BTW, she did get away once! lol!
    If you do this please make sure you do not get any water or soap near your hens face!

    Here I am scrubbing her up, I used some shampoo and a little conditioner.

    Here is a pic from before when she got away! lol!

    Then I just kept scrubbing and throwing water on her until she was soaked!
    Here is when I took her out. She was a little more went than she looks in the pic!
    Here are her legs/feet.

    Here is where I wrapped her up in her blanket

    I gave her a new hair style! She sure liked that! LOL!

    Here she is when me and @alexa009 brought her in the garage!


    She kept trying to snuggle up in us! CUTE!

    Since she was such a good girl I gave her a treat!

    RUNNING FREE! I let her outside to dry off in the sun!

    Nice and dry! She is shaking out her feathers!
