    Can you give a Buff Orpington a bath? She is a big bird and not sure how to go about doing it or what to use. Last week it appeared to look like she rolled in something and got alittle yucky on her back but was able to get it cleaned off. I go out this morning and she has a big glob of what I suspect is chicken dung on her. I think she is sleeping under someone, lol.

    [​IMG] You can give a silkie or a cochin (even standard) a bath so why not?

    Thing is, if she continues sleeping in the same place, are you prepared to do it on a regular basis? heh

    Absolutely!!!
    This is Slifer and Obelisk getting a bath so that they'd be nice and clean to go and mingle at their first ChickenStock...
