    Hello I would start by saying thank you to byc hopefully this is the right section for this... I am a southeast michigan first time small farm owner. I am raising oegb's and I am in desperate need of help dubbing my flock. I have never done this before. Someone with the experience would really help me. I want to learn. I can buy the supplies and pay for your trip and lunch included! I have some time to wait they are 3 weeks old right now but wanted to get a jump on it so i can have my "chicks"in a row. Thank you in advanced.

    They mainly used it in cockfighting, so there would not be anything for the roos to grab, & less blood. They adopted it to show some breeds of chickens. It will also help ward off frostbite, since there isn't anything to get frostbit.
