All, Yesterday I rescued a hen from the ditch by my house. I have no idea how it got there, but I couldn't leave the poor thing there! I think it was hit by a car, and it looked like its head and comb had blood crusted on it. I relocated it to an old dog kennel and set out some cracked corn and water to see if she'd make it through the night, and she did. What looked like blood now appears to be road tar. I tried to wash it off with a little water, but it isn't thinning or washing off. So, my rather odd question is this: How do I remove tar from a chicken? I've found a lot of helpful advice today on this forum, and I guess I'm in need of some more. Thanks in advance! G.
