It's winter in Indiana and it's gotten cold fast. This is our first winter with the girls and we read that we should put vaseline on their combs and wattles to prevent frostbite. Well apparently they don't like it much because they've been dusting a lot (we have a pan full of ash available for them to dust). Now our Golden Laced Wyandotte, Blondie, is filthy! She's usually all white with a bit of yellow but her head is now all gray and she's slowly turning gray all over. We noticed that her butt is pretty dirty also. Will her being so dirty make her sick? We've thought about bathing her but we're afraid she'll just be dirty again in a couple weeks. Plus we'd have to keep her inside until she got dry since it's so cold out. Should we just wait until the spring and bathe her then? Any help you can provide would be most appreciated!
