Bathing Hens


Apr 5, 2019
Hi Everyone,

I have 2 Isa Browns who needed to be bathed today (we are located in Australia and have quite a lot of bush fire smoke around) our girls smelt of it.

Our girls actually quite love having baths. However, we have one Isa that goes and crazy and runs around the house to find her perfect spot to clean and preen her feathers. While our other Isa just wants to sit up with you on your lap or beside you and have a little nap or just watch whatever you are doing.

Is this normal for them be this relaxed after a bath. She has always been like this. I'm wondering if it is just her personality as she is always this loving towards us.

My 3 hens would walk a few steps away then they would start to preen themselves after the bath (after blow dry). I think your relaxed Isa brown is super friendly!

PS. None of my hens are Isa brown
