    I would like to treat a couple of chickens to a day spa. They are very dirty and stressed. I would like to clean and pamper them. Any ideas?

    Do they have dirt to dust bathe in? Before I redid my run (always muddy) my chickens were dirty all the time. Put sand down and now clean chickens! Even a tub of sand would work!

    They free range, so I'm not sure. I also want to bathe (in water) my little Silkie Chick. Well... Pullet, she's 3 months. Is there a good way to bathe a Silkie?

    Angel got a bath. She didn't like it. I briefly had an eskimo chick while towel drying her, then I let her air dry in the warmth of my house... In a crate of course...
