    Dawn dish washing liquid. Get the original.

    You could try bathing them. Dawn dishwashing liquid is gentle but breaks down oils. Just use a bit in the water.

    Good idea, they resemble oil spill refugees right now. Also my white silkies are no longer white, ideas? and don'tcha know it we're having a bday party today and EVERYONE wants to see the birds. I washed everyone in baby shampoo yesterday but looks like it'll have to be another bath day.
