    CluckyCharms Chillin' With My Peeps

    Hi! I wanted to start this thread because I didn't see any on this site about it.

    I want every single "Do" and "Don't" that those who show their chickens and attend poultry shows have to offer.

    Please list safety precautions that can be taken to avoid (or at least hamper) chickens from getting sick from other peoples' chickens that already are sick at these shows.

    There are hundreds of horror stories about chickens getting sick at poultry shows because some idiot came to the show with a sick bird.

    I'd like to know everything about what can be done to help keep my chickens healthy and prevent them from catching anything at these exhibits.

    Thank you very much!
