    I entered some birds for the first time in a show last weekend. First of all, I would say give yourself plenty of time to wash the chickens. I took Friday off work and was able to wash 6. It took awhile due to the fact that after towel drying and blow drying each bird, I would crate them in shavings inside until they were completely dry. I would recommend reading http://www.pathfindersfarm.com/Washing.html, which helped me a lot.
