    Will it take for Blu-Kote to go away? Will it go away quicker if you wash it off? Just curious.

    Nail polish remover takes it off... [​IMG]

    It takes a lot longer coming off of a chicken, though. I sprayed a hen in November, and she still has a little touch of purple to her feathers... [​IMG]

    I was talking about off the chicken. Will it be O.K. to clip the feathers off that wtill have the blu-kote on them (after they grow out some, of course).

    Oh... sorry. [​IMG] I assumed that because I get it all over me when I spray it, that everyone else does too... [​IMG] It won't hurt the chickens if you just let it fade. I don't know that it helps to wash it, and the chickens really don't care for it. [​IMG] I wouldn't worry about clipping the feathers.

    I know about getting it all over yourself. Me and daughter looked like we smashed each others hands in the door or something. So funny. People say " oh, my, what happened to your hand" and your like, Blu-Kote, tough stuff. [​IMG]
