    Ok, I know you don't need to bathe a chicken, but I'm asking this just in case I do. When you wash chickens, do you use soap or shampoo? Or do you just rinse them with water? Also, do you use any kind of washcloth or just your hands?
    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I may not be much help, but I would not use soap. I would just use warm water.

    I use baby shampoo and my hands when I'm taking them out to the petshop or to a Chickenstock.Most of the time they don't need to be bathed. If you're showing, you're more likely to need to.
