    Just gave my two new 9 week old pullets a bath... they were not impressed. They were stinky so I bathed them before jumping to conclusions of illness, if they re-stink they'll be off to the vet!

    I left them outside in the sun to dry for a few minutes and noticed they were shivering. So now they're in their travel cage on a perch in the spare room with a towel over their cage and one of the central heating vents. Now they are happy.

    I'm sitting her too hot coz I'm running around doing things, including checking on them every few minutes... Sacrificing my comfort so they can be happy?

    I think I'm chicken whipped..... [​IMG][​IMG]

    Do you have a blow dryer? My girls seem to think it is the best thing ever to get blow-dried. In fact, I have to hold them up because they get sleepy. [​IMG]

    No I don't but I think they're getting the same effect from the heater blowing through the towel past them. They're all dopey now lol
