    Our two beautiful white roosters got into a fight with another who used to be the submissive one. They are okay thankfully and we've separated them but now they are brown from all the blood. What do I use to clean it off? It doesn't seem like just soap and water would do it but I haven't tried anything yet....
    Thanks for any suggestions

    I cleaned my last fight victim up by giving him a bath in the kitchen sink with baby shampoo. Just make sure to rinse well and confine him someplace warm until dry. I have even dried them with the hair dryer set on low.
