I am somewhat new to the showing arena, but I have been to quite a few throught my local county 4-H. Every time I go out I see people spraying their chickens combs with some kind of oil to make the comb a brilliant red. Also they had some kind of spray that made their feathers shine even moreso than usual. I had never seen anything like this and was astomished when I saw it. I was just wondering, I guess, what are all of these products and what should I do to put my bird in the best possible shape for show. How should I wash my bird? How early should I get my bird to the show for aclimation? Should I be worried about disease? Any advice would be very welcome.
