    I am showing chickens this year. It is my second time ever and this year I am really serious about it.
    I am showing
    An egg production trio of Red Sex Links
    Bantam Black Frizzle Cochin Cock
    LF Blue Cochin Pullet
    LF Blue Cochin Frizzle Cockerel

    I wondering how I should give them baths?
    Also is there a certain order to put the chickens in certain tubs?
    What does everyone else use for the products in the tubs?
    What should I sue for their combs and wattles?

    Giving a chicken a bath?I do not think that is the best idea,maybe just brush some dirt off,then rub them over with a soaked towl,not too wet.Clean their waddles with the towl,same for comb.

    It is quite normal for show chickens like cochins and silkies. Especially when it's for a show
