    Yesterday it rained all day and when I went to feed the chickens I found that Klingon and his brother Herbert had been fighting. They had no injuries except a few comb scratches but clearly they'd had a good old tussle and poor Klingon looked like he'd been dumped in a mud bath. Today the sun came out so I thought I'd share these pictures I of him being washed. He was very good and didn't try to escape or splash me at all.

    Before.....

    I ended up giving Henny my Blue orpington a bath to!! The only reason I gave her a bath was because I thought she was egg bound or something... I even gave her scrambled eggs! But I soon found out that she was just broody!!!! What a bust!!!!! But your Klingon looked really dirty!!! But the pictures gave me a laugh attack!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Will have to take an "after" now he's all dry but it hasn't stopped raining and my camera isn't working right. His head is still a bit dirty coz I was worried about getting soap in his eyes but he looks a lot better than before!
