    I am wondering if anyone shows White Frizzles and can tell me if it is possible to bathe them? I just got 2 back from anold buyer and they reek of manure and are pretty filthy but wonder if there is a certain method to washing them since the feathers are so different? Thanks all!

    No I wash them the same as my other chickens but do add a bit of blue shampoo for the brillance. Never feed them corn or scratch, it will turn their feathers yellow!

    Hi Salty, thanks for the reply! Can you tell me the method you use for washing from start to finish? Is it anything at all like washing a dog where you simply wet them down with a warm spray, apply bluing shampoo, soak a few minutes then rinse, rinse, rinse? Then I would towel blot dry then lightly blow dry?
