I told my mom that I am going to take a chicken to the 4th of July Pet Parade, (easier than a goat). OK, which chicken should I take? Should I take one of the roos? Is there a leash that I could put the chicken on. I plan on bringing it in a carrier. Should I practice with the leash before hand? Should I dress my chicken for the occassion? Millie, my adult RIR - no objection as long as not close to the other chickens to being held Dorothy, very pretty Brahma cross - not crazy about being held, but better than she was Hedy Lamar, EE - ok if for a short period Maggie, Delaware, - doesn't like being held Captain Jean Lafitte, cockerel - used to take for "walks" as a chick, loved going places The thing is at 10 AM, these girls should be laying by July 4th. Will it mess with their laying schedules and bother them?
