    My 4 week old chickies went out for the first time in the hot 90 degree heat.While they had fun, they got very dirty, and I was wondering if it is okay to bathe them this young. Thanks for your help!

    IMO, safer to give them something to take a dustbath in than to risk having them get chill from a water bath.
