So I surfed the internet trying to get info on this and was surprised to find.... Nothing. Anyways I have a very high quality Cochin bantam but this is my first time experiencing a feather legged chicken, since I am a modern game breeder, So with a show coming up in about 2 months its time for me to put her into conditioning for the show, the problem is her once pristine feathered legs are now gunged up with mud. How do I clean them and get them ready for show? Someone told me pluck them so they will grow in nice before the show, but I don't have the heart to pluck my chickens feathers :/ Can anyone help me?
