Step 1: Chickens + one year old+ chocolate gooey candy=chicken that needs a bath. Her tail feathers were all matted and sticky. Her back was covered in chocolate saliva. I felt bad for the poor birdie. Step 2: Chickens like warm water in a bucket on the lawn with some dishsoap. I got that part right. * They dont particularly like having thier faces smashed into bubbly water. (Thanks 3 year old) * They really dont like having their wet, skinny looking nexts smashed in a toddlers strong little hands. *And when everyone starts screaming "let go! Youre hurting her" it doesnt help the chicken or the One-year old stay calm. Step 3: Now you have distressed, wet, bubbly chickens. A cold water rinse does not seem like it would be helpful. So, here is what NOT to do. Do NOT bring them in the house and put them in the kitchen sink to spray them off with warm water. They drip all over the floor, but that isnt as bad as what happens if they get thier wings free. Just sayin. Step 4: Dont do all this at dusk. Then you have three cold, wet, tired, grumpy birds who want nothing to do with a blowdryer, but look so cold. Better idea: just have a sticky chicken.
