    We are going to our first show next week.[​IMG] I was wondering if anyone had suggestions about how to supply food and water to our chickens during our trip. We plan to carry 6 males and 6 pullets in dog carriers, 3 to a cage. Any suggestions?

    Everything should be fine. Use you waterers and feeders. Here's a tip you may or may not want to use. Make sure your birds have water, but try not to feed the birds before the show. They can go 24 hours with no food without a problem. This will keep your birds alert and active. After the judging you can feed them.
