    Looking into the future, I decided I want my chickens to be in 4-H. I am going to enter in the childrens division. While they are chicks, are there things I can do to prepare them to be in show?

    Is there special food or treats that will help them grow a healthy coat of feathers?

    Also, I was wondering, when the time comes for me to show my chickens, are there special brushes, shampoos, or tools I can use to clean them and clip claws? I am showing silkie, sultan, and golden seabright bantams.

    Sorry for all the questions, these are my very first chickens.[​IMG]
