    How old should your chicks be before you start to bathe them? Mine aren't put in show or anything but sometimes their bottoms get yucky and it would be nice for them to wash up. how old should they be and if the weather is warm can I just let them run around to dry off?

    if you give them a little sand box in their coop/brooder then they should be able to clean themselves independently with a dust bath
