I have a brooding chicken that has been sitting on her nest for the past two weeks. Today she decided to go for a little stretch in the garden and promptly got some duck tape stuck to her backside. I tried to get to her to get the tape off before it got emeshed in her feathers, but to no avail. (Imagine a sort of tag game with the chicken, where the chicken was obviously more experienced.) Now she is back in the coop, on her eggs. I can get to her there, but the tape is now truly stuck in her feathers as she has sat on it. I have read (from a previous thread) that oil is good for getting it off, but as she is on the nest and broody, just not sure how to approach this without causing too much distress. Any ideas or suggestions seriously welcome. PS: Honestly I am trying not to laugh too much, whilst being worried for her.
