    Can I give the chicks some kind of bath? They were fine for a while but today these guys must have had a food fight [​IMG]Can I put them in the bathtub with a tiny bit of water (like just enough to cover their feet)? I hate seeing them so filthy.

    If they have dried food stuck on them, take a warm damp wash cloth to dried food and gently rub it out. I recommend not putting the chicks in a tub with water. If they get soaked and cold for too long, they'll get stressed out and could die.

    That's what I was afraid of. I'll wipe those babies down then [​IMG]
