Hello, It is fair time here is Boone County. Last week was county and this week is District. My children and I took each bird they was going to show 2 by 2 and gave them baths. The Cochin did great as well as the Amercauanas. The problem happened when I got to our Silkie boys. Black did good and I turned around to give him to the kids to blow dry. When I turned back around Blue was shaking his head in the water. I don't know what happened. Maybe it was the shampoo, maybe he got water in his nose (I don't know how he was standing). Cound birds be allergic to shampoo? So, I wash and rinse him quick with the kids blow drying. He just gets worse. I put him in his carrior with his brother. They have never be apart hoping it will be alright. The next morning I overslept but check on Blue anyway before going to work. Blue was on his back and had clearly been vomiting. Black is talking to him. I was going to put him down but didn't have time. I flip him over to his belly and Black stays by his side. Blue got better over the last week and seems completely normal now. I told Noah he could show him. He was very hurt he didn't get to show him but understood why. He has taken him outside and played with him and the other chickens. I have seen no odd behavior. Question: Should I try giving him a bath again or skip it? I don't think this is a APA show......your thoughts please. thank you, cray I am including Eden with Black's picture of Grand Champion in County last week. Blue is Noah's bird and as I stated didn't show.
