do i need to bathe my chicks?
thank you for replying
Sorry, but got a mental picture of a mini bathtub full of chicks and bubble bath!
I know that would be funny
haha i love the prompt and blunt 'no'! Would it do them any harm?
Mmm... if they're chicks, it could get them chilled, which would be bad. They need to stay warm. So, no, generally speaking and just as a matter of chicken maintenance, you don't need to bathe your chicks. If you dipped them in strawberry jam it might be different. But then, really, I'd just recommend that you STOP DIPPING THEM IN JAM!
chicklover, chickens love to take a dust bath, it's their way of taking a shower. It really helps to eliminate mites and lice.
