    How do you give a 14 week old chicken a bath?

    This is not necessary, the chickens do this on their own with a dust bath.... you can find alot of info with a search.....good luck with the new knowledge....

    Usually you don't bathe a chicken unless you are preparing them for a show. Dust bathes are perfectly natural, work great, and don't involve you up to you elbows in suds and sopping wet because the chicken keeps flapping!
