    I am entering a bunch of birds at a local poultry show at a fair and can't figure out if I can show my French Black Copper Marans Hen or not? There is no class specifically for them but there are non breed specific classes. I just can't figure out which one she would be entered in.

    I know it would be in the standard breed section instead of the bantam breed but would she be a light, a heavy, a mixed class light or heavy?

    I would probably enter her in the Heavy class.

    You're welcome. Yes, shows are very exciting! I've been showing chickens for 4 years, and still get really excited right before a show. Good luck!

    What kind of soap do you use to bathe your chickens?

    I use a whitening shampoo that is made for dogs; I forget the exact brand. In the past, I've used a mild baby shampoo. The most important thing when washing chickens is to stay away from harsh soaps, such as Dawn.

    Wow good thing I asked. I was actually going to use Dawn.
