So my chickens are participating in a petting zoo for the moxie festival. What should I bring them in? like the people need to be able to actually pet them, but I dont want them flying out. Im going to ask how big of an area it is, because we have a portable run that is 8x6, so we can load it up and bring it so people can come in and pet them without them being able to fly out, also I can bring more chickens that way. My other option is to build or buy some kind of cage and take them out if someone wants to hold them. I'm using this as an experience for them since I plan on showing them, so the cage would simulate a show enviornment, but the run would probably be more fun for kids and easier and less stressful for me and the birds. Any ideas? Also, odd question, but would you do anything to "decorate" them. Like people glam up their ponies with glittery mane, and make the "prettyful" for the little kids. Is that something I could do with like my silkies? Paint their toenails or something. Now that would freak my 4H leader out bad!
