    My cochins feet are very dirty from the rainy weather we've been having, how should her feet be cleaned and if possible ways to help keep them clean.

    You can bathe her feet, I use ivory dish soap and luke warm water, just wash them like you would wash anything else, obviously not too hard ;-) Then blow dry her feet, careful not to burn her. But as for keeping them clean, all you really can do is keep her in a dryer area, or trim her feathers.
