    I have a hen in the house that is recovering from an injury. I want to give her an epson bath but I forgot how much epson to water ratio. Any clues??

    No, but I put about 1 1/2 cups in a large dishpan. No one has died yet and I have one hen that is always "not well" these days and if she gets messy back there and is not feeling well I give her a bath w/ epson salt too, she likes it, nice and warm.
