How To Give A Chicken A Bath

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am showing chickens this year. It is my second time ever and this year I am really serious about it.
I am showing
An egg production trio of Red Sex Links
Bantam Black Frizzle Cochin Cock
LF Blue Cochin Pullet
LF Blue Cochin Frizzle Cockerel

I wondering how I should give them baths?
Also is there a certain order to put the chickens in certain tubs?
What does everyone else use for the products in the tubs?
What should I sue for their combs and wattles?

Giving a chicken a bath?I do not think that is the best idea,maybe just brush some dirt off,then rub them over with a soaked towl,not too wet.Clean their waddles with the towl,same for comb.

I have a  few chickens.

2 barreds,named Falcon and Hawk

1 New Hampshire rooster named,Zeus

2 New Hampshire hens named,Vanillipe (One has no name)

1 silver laced Wyandotte named,Special girl

1 White Leghorn roosters named Foggy

3 black&red Sex links,(Black)angel,and one red is named little red,and the other one is Mrs.Prissy

And a few others that sadly,died

 

I have a 11 ducks.

It is quite normal for show chickens like cochins and silkies. Especially when it's for a show
