hi ian, i put the bath out for mine once a week on a sunday morning, im just using plain fresh water at the moment as i dont know anything about whats the best to put in.....i was going to make the water a little bit warm as i thought it might soak the feathers better and more tighter ??? ive heard some who use garlic during the week tip the old cloves into it....... cheers

ian,just been on and looked...it seems all our pictures together are over the limit.....no one can do any more. if you go to this link you can just click on browse and it will take you to your own pics on your computer and then upload them onto this hosting site.....copy and paste the img code and just put them anywhere on our topics or on the members photos further down the page.... this site is easy ian and you dont even need to join and be a member...let me know if its ok for you.

Idea

But if the widowhood cocks have had a hard race then have given them a warm bath myself and massaged the pigeons in the passage way in the loft
