    I need advice on bathing...

    I washed my silkie pullet that has a "huge" top knot and it is always bending towards the front, doesn't stand up straight and the sides are always wet. I washed it with baby shampoo, thought I'd gotten all the gunky things out, but it still bends forward and looks odd. I bathed herfor a show tomorrow, & put in a water bottle waterer so she can't "dunk" her head in it. Is there anything else I could hve done to make her top fluff up better?
