So...I signed my daughter up for chicken 4-H this year and signed myself up for WAY more craziness than I realized. Hence this question.... We have to wash the chickens and turkeys for the fair. I've gotten the instructions on how to do that, but they all say to use warm water. Getting warm water to where I'm going to wash the birds (sorry, BUT NOT doing it in the bathroom!) would be a crazy hassle of boiling and hauling water. So...Do the birds REALLY need to have warm water? If washed on a sunny warm day? What if the water was simply tepid? (I could fill the tubs earlier and let the sun warm them up). Advice appreciated.
