A thing I thought I'd never hear myself saying: "I just shampooed some chickens." Three, actually. In the kitchen sink. And, it went surprisingly well, not the wet mess I was expecting! I guess it helped that two of them trust me implicitly (or they DID LOL) and the third is a very young, very simple creature that was too befuddled by the whole thing to struggle much or flap. The only thing I've ever tried to wash on a bird up to this point, was feet to soak bumblefoot or treat scaly mites.
I must admit to a little befuddlement myself--I'm pretty proud of myself for how well my very first poultry spa adventure went, but then I catch myself with a small feeling of "Dude, you just SHAMPOOED CHICKENS. So they'll look pretty for the camera. Don't you have better things to do?" And then the next thought is "I wonder if I could clean a turkey or a goose?" Though I imagine such an endeavor would require me literally showering at the same time.
I go back and forth :rofl:
I am suitably impressed !
There should be a special emoji for bravery for just this type of situation. :top points
