First, I want to thank so many posters on here for all of the help you have given our son and learning about poultry. We have a small flock of 8 hens, 3 guineas. Last year he showed the guineas and followed advice he found on here. He did well. This year we added 6 silkies and a new coop in addition to the production chickens. He is even donating his eggs to a local food pantry each week as part of his project. For this year's show, he wants to show a dozen eggs and his silkie pairs. I read and explained to him, as he is autistic, what we need to do by bathing and blow drying the chickens before the show, etc. If anyone could help us by giving us a quick run-down of what to do to show the eggs and some silkie pointers, etc. it would be great. Is there any age too young to show the silkies? Is there any age too young to wash the silkies ? We also change the coop bedding every two=three weeks to keep down on all disease etc. A family member was an animal science/feed specialist so the food is covered as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, our son has come from being scared of the chickens two years ago to now holding and talking to his silkies each day. It is a real miracle. Thanks again!
