    My orpington has really messed up her rear end again, I have to wash her every couple of months anyway because of this. She is just a few months old so this is the first time I am going to give her a bath in colder weather. I really don't want her to suffer an illness because she wasn't able to clean her rear feathers but I also don't want her to catch a cold by bathing her in this weather. Say if I washed her in warm water and dried her really thoroughly would that be better?

    Thank you so much!

    Yes, use a blow dryer but it wouldn't hurt to keep her inside overnight.
