    I have 2 buffs that are about a week and a half (& 5 silkies :) that are 3 days). They are separated for now, the buffs seem to need a little bath. There feet especially.i don't want to soak then should I just do my best to wipe them down? Just looking for tips. Thank you in advance and sorry if this is a simple question.

    When my chicks need a bath, I just hold them up to the faucet (usually I'm cleaning booties). They don't struggle and usually fall asleep in my hand. Then I pat them dry and pop them back in the brooder. Easy least.

    If that doesn't sound ideal to you, a wet wash clothe or paper towel would most likely do the trick [​IMG]
