Many health food stores carry it too.
Oh DSSR it is amazing how calm the chickens get when you bath them, just make sure it is pretty warm water. They don't resist it after they are wet.

Use sunlight dish soap Put the dissoap on wetted feathers, rib and rince.
Sunlight specificly takes out vasaline and other petrolium products.

Re: Bathing your Chicken for a Show (Lots pics)

You can use any dish soap. Make sure you use it straight not diluted and put it on a dry feather then rinse and then lather again with dishsoap and rinse.   Mr. Hiddenriver will have to cuddle the chicken while she drys after her spa treatment  :rofl:

Today I have started washing my birds for the show.  I thought I would revitalize this post for those who may need it.
