    Question regarding showgirls

    They do well with anyone a silkie will do well with. If you are putting them in with a large fowl flock don't get any crested breed with a valued scull. They are OK outside in winter but need extra bedding like many bantams. Showgirls are great chickens with fiesty personalities!

    Oxy is a general that will do resp right? If so you could try that. But I'd worm don't know that pidgeons and chickens share viruses? Can you use front line on them? If the chicks hatch in mites you'll loose them

    With ai its no joke to break the law like that. I'd think twice about the dangers of doing this.

    This time of year when they have drastic temp changes can encourage poopy butt. Make sure they have access to chick grit and the bedding is warm.
