    My polish fell in his water and now hes wet and covered in shavings.
    I probably need to give him a bath because everything won't come off.
    What shampoo is safe for a chicken? will dawn dish soap work?

    I use baby shampoo, just because I have a baby and it's handy. I think dawn would be ok, as long as it's the plain kind.

    I use dawn dish soap. It works the best for me and rinses out very well.
