    So I was wondering what do you use to bring your chickens to a poultry show? I have my first show coming up and I entered 5 bantams. I wondering if I could use a cat carrier/pet taxi? Also is there any way to put a food/water cup on a pet taxi?(the kind you snap on the cages). Sorry if these are dumb questions but I would really like to know the answers :p

    They're not dumb! :D I use pet carriers for shows, (I have a large, medium and small) and depending on how far your going (or how long the trip will be) They shouldn't need food or water in the cage/carrier since they usually spill it. At most poultry shows for the conformation type showing they'll go into little wire cages at the show that have little containers for food and water (or maybe bring your own just in case?)

    Ok thanks for answering and I found out they do provide cages and water cups. And all I need to bring is a food and water cup for my showmanship bird along with a carrier :D
