    Poultry Show Cages

    We are buying new pens and need to find a home for the old. Our fair has replaced the sheep, pig and goat pens (all with donations) and it's our turn.

    how to give your chickens a bath?

    If the humidity is high, bathing isn't a good way to cool your birds off, they won't dry and can actually get pneumonia. When you say give your birds a bath are you really talking a bath or a wet down. I give my birds a true bath for Fair and shows. 3 tubs, soap the whole works

Private breeder birds still have flighty tendencies but are...

    actually a very handsome Old man, he's 5 and very spoiled, but is the Rooster I take to all my demos, he's a show bird too. This is one of his professional Photos, I dared a photographer to take the pictures. She took the dare and did great, she's now taking chicken pictures.

You add a door, drill 2 small hole in the roof add 2 eye hooks to hang feed & water. they are movable to clean, once the snow hits it seals up the bottom. you add a fence instant coop (warm in the winter too) adding a light for...
