    I have read how to dub and I have some roosters that were already dubbed, but I've never done it myself. To be honest, I'm scared I'm going to mess one up and it look terrible. Is there anyone in GA (prefer middle GA but won't be picky) that would dub a nice black rooster I have or let me watch them do one ? I'm willing to pay for the instruction.

    The problem with that is that I don't own a computer or a smartphone. I can't watch videoes on this phone.

    There's some articles on it too, with pictures. Look up how to dub chickens and there's a good article on Ultimate Fowl.

    If you plan to breed them, doing it yourself is best.

    If you plan to just do it once or a couple times, you can try locating a Game farm/breeder. (American Games) I'm sure there are some in your area.

    I'm less than 1 hr 30 min from Columbus. Is there someone who could help me ? I don't want to just learn to do it, I want to learn how to do it for show purposes.

    Cutting off the comb and wattles of the rooster. That has to be done in order to show them.

    Quote:Dubbing is in fact removing comb and wattles, but to prevent frostbite and painful swelling and a long term painful ordeal where they will eventually fall off.
