    I see all these posts about peoples chickens that like water and like getting bathed. BUT my chickens HATE water soooooooo much. They will scream their heads off when I try to bathe them, and they are terrified by a hose. IDK what is up with them.

    Is this normal? Do your chickens hate water too?

    I think most chickens are scared of the hose. Those chickens who like water were just introduced to it in a not threatening way. Some of my chickens don't mind wading because they are around te water fowl ponds a lot.
