    Thanks - I'll try on my 3 girls that I hand reared to do the wash first plan to practice and if it goes badly I will just do the vaseline on the others!

    PouleChick, castor oil is used as a laxative so try looking at the pharmacy near the enema supplies. It's not messy at all if you use gloves. I mixed tea tree oil into the castor oil and then used a paint brush to work it in. It stays much longer than vaseline so you don't have to apply so often.
