    Welcome to Backyard Chickens. A bit of dish soap ( like Dawn) will help unstick her,
    rinse well, and wrap her in a towel to get her mostly dry or use a hair dryer on low.

    Hello and welcome to BYC. I hope that you enjoy your time here. I would have thought bathing the affected area will sort the issue out.

    This is a useful link to take a look at - “How to...” guides. You may wish to consider including your location under your avatar (using the guide in the link above). You can use this link to contact members in your area - U.S. States

    Best wishes
