    Okay, my chicken Coco Puff has this really sticky stuff on her back and the other chickens are pecking her, making her loose her feathers. So what do I do? Can you give chickens a bath? [​IMG]

    Yes, you can bathe a chicken. It's alot of trouble but it can be done. What kind of sticky stuff is on her back?

    First, keep the victim seperated. Make sure she has water and food available, and put something on her back to heal it. That's all teh advice I can give, hopefully someone can give you more.
