Actually, I felt they enjoyed it. Oh yes......they kicked and squaked on the way in but once in the water they were real quiet. I got the impression they liked it. First I thought, maybe they are in shock but when we put them back for the night they were real active and lively. BTW....this is their second bath in their short lifetime.
Guess I can't imagine washing poo off the dead chicken I am going to put in the oven. Call me nuts.....I will agree.
I have...I actually did it once to cool one of ours off. We were having a 90 degree day and he looked liked he just couldn't take it anymore. So I put him in some cool water. He loved it. He was cool for the rest of the day. I completely understand. When I raise our meaties I'm constantly changing their bedding, sometimes 5x's a day.
