    Wet chickens are very susceptible to hypothermia. Dry her completely, and she should be good to go.

    Dry her off with a hair dryer. Most chickens really enjoy the warm air.[​IMG]

    If she has evidently been chilled, don't put her back with the flock until her body temperature has become normal.
