    It's not an emergency but I have silkies and a strip of fly paper fell from the roof and became stuck to a chicken. I have managed to remove it all with no real issue. It's a very friendly chicken. The problem is now there is sticky goo stuck to her face. What should I do to remove it?

    We had this happen to our hen the best thing we found was rubbing alcohol and cutting the feathers back almost to the skin helps. Also we have a product called orange off which is a degreaser used by mechanics, we use a small amount then bath the hen really really well. Good luck
