    I have a leghorn I need to dub. I have never done it before, so it might be best to have a vet do it. Does anyone have a recommendation? I live in Evanston, IL.

    I wouldn't recommend doing it on your own...I don't know if vets dub. Why are you dubbing your Leghorn, if I may ask? The main purpose of dubbing is to take off a Game birds comb when showing.

    Leghorns aren't meant to be dubbed.
