    Ok, so since its raining, I have my two silkies inside, and my youngest, peppa, decided 'since I can't be outside to get wet ima get wet in here' and she soaked herself in the water bowl. Now I don't want to blow dry her because its been a while since she's actually been cleaned, and since she's already wet, I want to give her a bath.

    I want to know how to wash her, because I've washed other chickens, but not silkies. Could anyone help me with this?

    I wash my silkie the same way I wash my other chickens, afterwards I like to use a blow dryer. What kind of shampoo do you use?

    I bathe my silkies like I would bathe my RIR I then blow dry them and let them roam the house for a little bit before they are put back outside. I use baby shampoo to wash them with
