    Maybe you could take some warm water and a washcloth and gently wipe the poo off their heads. When you are finished you could use a hairdryer on low from a good distance away to dry them off. [​IMG] That's what I would do at least but I am no expert by any means.

    4 weeks? They may be getting head feathers. Are you certain those are poop stains and not emerging feathers?

    At 4 weeks, if you have them in a reasonably warm place, they can handle it if you get their heads a little wet. If it's really poop, and it's hard to get off with just warm water, a little dilute baby shampoo is fine to use, too.
