We have never even been to a show, but he has been asking to show for a couple years since I told them about breed standards and shows, etc. We went to our first local poultry club meeting and put in our paperwork. He wants to show *6* birds! I thought it was too much, but the older guys there told me to let him and it would be fun. But after hearing about all the prep seasoned showers do, I'm feeling a little nervous. What all do we need to do to our birds before the show? He wants to show 3 cockerels, all 6 mos old, a black Orp, a blue Ameraucana, and a wheaten Penedesenca. Then he also wants his favorite pet, our Pyncheon rooster, plus 2 pullets, a black Ameraucana and a wheaten Penedesenca. One of the guys came up to me after the meeting and told me to make sure he bathes each of them, trims their nails, and puts some baby oil on their combs and wattles. Any other advice? Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!
