Send the chickens to partner. Then maybe show up at show once all the preperation is all done. Works well for me, Thanks Liz and all her helpers.

Remember when you are breaking in your "grooming" partner don't bring them 100 birds the first time! KRL,Steve and I were definitely broke in after the Sept show.

Hey I didn't bring all of them. Remember who said they would wash all I brought, I sometimes do as told. Regardless, you and your helpers did an amzing job in a short amount of time. I know i never would have been prepared for a show without all you guys did.

It was a sleepless blast! It is amazing how fast things can go with a good setup and a team! I am looking forward to the next show!

Is it recommended that all birds be bathed? How far in advance of the show? What kind of shampoo?
I've only taken them to a fair so far so didn't do any prep. I guess I should for a "real" show?? It would be for our australorps and possibly lakenvelders who keep very clean.

Yes your birdies should be bathed. It will knock your socks off the difference. Even if it is just a fair you never know who you will have contact with and what sales you will create with your birds looking their best. There are many grooming products that work well. On my white birds I use a whitener shampoo for horses, on my coloured birds I use Ivory dish washing liquid or a dog flea shampoo. Hope to post pictures of bathing birds soon.
