    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.

    If you do this please make sure you do not get any water or soap near your hens face!
