    We have a poultry show next weekend, and plan on showing some silkies. They are filthy beasts rite now! I would like to bath them today and really scruba dub dub them as best we can, and then give them a bath also on Thursday before the show. Is this tooo much bathing? I'm just wanting to make like somewhat simpler for Thursday cause we will have quit a few more birds to bath that day to get ready. So I would like to get them clean as possible today, and more of a quick touch up bath on Thurs. Suggestions please!!![​IMG]

    Can't you just bathe them now and put them in pens that are bedded heavily with clean shavings? That might be best, IMO.
