I am extremely allergic to poison ivy and thought we had pulled it all down off our fence that back up to a wooded area. While my ladies were our foraging for insects I saw them brush up against a patch that managed to work it's way under the fence. I pulled it up of course but now I'm worried about petting my chickens! I love my girls and hold each of them everyday and feed them by hand but I'm afraid the sap may be on their feathers and then transferred to me. Can I give my chickens a bath to get rid of it? Or do I just have to wait? I know the sap is viable for several months and I'm afraid to not be social with them that long. Any suggestions would be so welcome!
