Bath time.

I haven’t given the birds a bath since separating them a couple of weeks ago. They don’t go out once separated so I have to give them the bath in the loft. Not ideal as it does make the floor very wet but it does dry out quite quickly. I filled the watering can up and took it with the bath into the cocks first and filled it up. I went down the garden and re-filled the watering can for the hens. By the time I got back up to the loft, at most a couple of minutes, the cocks were all in the bath.

I put another bath and filled it for the hens. The same with them.

All in the bath by the time I got back to the loft with the final watering can for the 4 stock cocks. The stock cocks weren’t quite the same as one cock decided that he wanted to himself.

That's where the lino will be good, Andy. 

Give it a wipe with an old cloth and it will be almost dry. 

I once saw a video of a loft in Europe, with a widowhood section that had the hard epoxy floor. It was coved up about 6 inches around the walls. After the birds were finished the fancier got down with a towel and dried the floor. 

Everything was spotless. 

I am good! They aren't firing rubber bullets at me. Yet.

Yes Murray. Unfortunately it was dark by the time I got home and removed the baths. It does come up nice when washed still.

Great pictures Andy, not a lot of room to move in there, not sure where the soap is 👍🤠🤣😂 the birds certainly do love a bath especially on a chilly winter's day.
