    Texas Hill Country!
    I have a show coming up next week, it is a backyard chicken show and not breed specific. I am entering my 2 EE pullets, my polish pullet, my BR pullet, my BO pullet, 2 of my production red pullets and my precious buff bantam cohin cockerel. The two I am concerned the most about other than just bathing them is my cochin and polish. We had a recent down poor and my polish's head is a little dirty. My little roo's feet are also not in great shape after the story weather. I soaked his feet a while but they see to be stained. Any tips on getting my babies ready to show??? It will be my first show so I can use all the tips I can get!

    Oxiclean. It's gritty and lifts stains! It won't hurt their feathers either. Hydrogen peroxide dims stains too, and it's definitely safe for chickens.
