    I have been busy researching how to bathe my chickens properly, I have 3 silkies who could use a bath! I need advice on what kind of soap is safe to use! Something that won't dry out their feathers because of removing the
    oil. Also any advice for bathing a silky will be appreciated! Thank you!
    By the way- I have 2 white silkies and a black one, I want the white feathers to be all white again!

    Apparently you just have to use good quality soap or shampoo or try use basic soap if you're not sure what you're using.
    (it should be OK, I've tried it on my Silkie and it was fine)
