    I wait until they are dry, then use a soft toothbrush...you know...a chickie brush. You don't have to get them wet, and it works perfectly!!!

    I give mine a bath in nice warm water and then dry them off in a nice terry cloth and back into the brooder to finish drying. Never lost a chick yet.
