    If a bird is entered in the fair. When you check in what do the vets do? Just check for sick birds? I just found a hen that I have entered in fair with bumble foot. Its not limping but a bit puffy. Do they check the feet? underside of them? Should I still enter her? Thanks!

    Generally they do a check for parasites and disease and such. I would not suggest entering a bird with bumblefoot, it wouldnt be good on the bird because of the stress and the nastyness of it all.
