The rain has brought mud and my chickens have mud on their feathers, and on their feet. The mom in me wants to wash them, but i do not know how it would effect them putting them outside all wet. it looks the worst on my white leghorns, and delawares, and the tops of my black crested polish. If the mud can make them sick, I will figure out how to dry them after a bath, but if it wont, Ill leave them be and deal with the ugly feathers. this is my first winter with chickens.
