    Quote:Its even funnier in person!!! These three almost fell asleep a couple times. I physically had to hold them up because they would almost fall asleep and drop their heads under water!!

    Same thing with the blow drying. They'll nestly up to you as close as they can and just hunker down in the warm air!

    They ARE too funny! But they are FUN FUN FUN!!

    I didn't realize you could bathe your chickens (still a newbie and learning)... what do you wash them in? I imagine it's not going to be something like Head and Shoulders or Pantene. [​IMG]

    Quote:Some people use Johnson & Johnsons baby shampoo, others use Adams Flea & Tick shampoo for dogs.

    I am using Seargents Gold Fleat & Tick shampoo for dogs and puppies. Its clear and smells better than Adams.

    I rinse them in water with glycerin in it...

    Quote:There aren't any dumb questions, unless its ones that you dont askt. I didn't know what it was either until I got into bathing Silkies.

    Glycerin is whats in soap sometimes. Its a skin protectant and its a clear liquid. Its available at the pharmacy. I picked mine up at Walmart yesterday.

    I fill up half of the kitchen sink with clean, warm water, and add two or three good squirts of glycerin.

    The glycerin water is supposed to help with the fluffiness of the feather I think. You can also use one or two DROPS of liquid bluing on white birds to make them appear whiter.
