    I am going to start showing my chickens through 4-H. The fair isn't until August. I was wondering how to I get them ready for it?

    What kind of birds are they? Are you doing showmanship with them or just exhibition?

    Obviously you want them nice and clean and free of pests, but if you are doing showmanship, you need to work with them as often as possible working on the various things the judge will ask you. I have a link somewhere, from 4H, but there is also a lot of videos on YouTube of chicken showmanship that are sometimes more helpful.
