    I got to find out today. My little mille fleur roo got into a large bucket of water. I found him just in time. Took him inside and used my wife's blow drier to get him back. He just stood there shivering for a long time, then finally started grooming. Then I knew he was going to be all right. I spent about 45 minutes drying him. I had to keep adjusting the temperature of the drier. If he started smelling like supper I turned it down.

    You are only supposed to use a low heat setting, so they don't get burned.

    I have brought a couple of our standard pullets into the house for clean up. After about 45 minutes, she has to stay in the mud room overnight so that I'm sure she is completely dry before going back to the hen house.

    As an example, it takes me about 45 minutes to get our White Wyandotte semi-dry on a low setting of the hair dryer.

    Did you know that if you return a semi-wet bird to general population, the others may pick on her? I didn't... I found this one out the hard way, poor girl.

    Hit the http:// button, and you get something like this (I'm going to change the bracketts, so it won't do that on me):
