    What is the best wayfor our daughter to prepare her birds for showing. She has given one of them a practice bath and scrubed and trimmed toe nails. What is the best way to shine up the combs and wattles? Do you also do anything with the legs and feet?

    I use VetRX on the comb, wattles, and legs when preping for a show. Gives it a good shine. Some TSCs carry it but we had to order it online. If your show is soon then that isn't very helpful but for the future, it's good stuff for show preping as well as colds or sneezes that my poultry have had. I tend to give them a little bit after every show, as well. It works miracles on my droopy and sickly, too.
