    I have a really sticky gooey chick that I had to help out today. (long story)
    I wonder if I should give it a bath? It's poor feathers are just glued to itself. There where globs of egg white that I removed but it is just so sticky. I wonder what I can do to help it out? Any ideas?
     

  2. Ya giving it a bath would be good, just soak it in some water use some baby or gentle soap then blow dry it. It should be good to watch it for a little bit

    make sure the water is warm but not hot and make sure you dry it well so it doesn't get hypothermia
