    Preparing to show my silkies for the first time and need to bathe them. Any pointers on what to do or not do? Any special shampoo I should use?

    I never knew you can bathe chickens but I hope your chickens do good at the show [​IMG]

    On the B/B/S and White, I use the blue tinted shampoo, the same I use on my grey hair.
    Clairol Shimmer Lights, as the final wash.
    I feel it brings out the color better.
    What color birds do you have?
    And the most important thing on show day is to keep the poop off the toes.
    Good luck!
