Ok, I have signed up to show one of my silkies at the state fair this year. He's a sweet boy and he's gorgeous. Though, last year I was not impressed with the other birds I saw at all. So, What types of treatments should I give him, shots and such. Where can I get them so I know he's protected around the other birds? Also, does he need to be registered? What kind of cage and size should I have? I have a dog kennel, completely open bar style, not the carrier, that is a good size 2 1/2' x 2', will that work? This is the NC State fair... there site is hard to navigate for answers sometimes (plus the site with the sign up info has been down for days).
