I had heard that you could bathe a chicken but never tried until today. I have a bantam d'uccle with heavily feathered feet and it has been a muddy winter. Needless to say her poor feet were filthy, so I decided to give it a shot. I wish I had video taped it. She took to the water like a duck and seemed to purr through the bath. I dried her off with a towel and had her in my lap when I decided to expedite the drying and try to blow her dry. She didn't flinch a bit. When I turned her over on her back with her legs sticking out, I ran the dryer on high speed, medium heat while fluffing her feathers. She just laid there, eyes fluttering and closing. Reminded me of myself when I get a massage. lol. She even let me trim her feathers.
