Bathing your chickens, whether it's a large flock or a single bird, can be a beneficial and bonding experience. Not only does it help keep your birds clean and healthy, but it can also be a relatively quick and easy process with the right tools and techniques.
1. Rinse your Chicken with water (Preferably warm water)
To begin, rinse your chicken with water, using a showerhead or tub. This will help make the shampooing process easier and ensure that the soap is properly applied to your bird's feathers.
2. Add some F10 Shampoo into a tub for easy soaping of the chook!
3. Rinse off the soap and towel dry your chook.
5. Dry using Hairdryer, optionally using a Pet Drying Box (Links below!)
To fully dry your chicken, you can use a hairdryer on the low or medium setting, being careful to keep the nozzle a few inches away from your bird's skin. Alternatively, you can use a pet drying box, which can hold up to 4-5 bantams at a time. Just be sure to monitor the temperature inside the box, as it can get warm and heated up, especially if using the base as grill option.
After your chicken is fully dried, it's a good idea to let them sun dry for a bit if possible. This will help ensure that they are completely dry and comfortable.
With these steps, you can easily give your chickens a bath, even if you have a large flock. Just remember to gather your supplies, choose a suitable location, prepare the bath, and dry your birds properly. Your feathered friends will be clean, healthy, and happy in no time.
6. Bathe next one and add it into the basket with the rest!
