I’m taking these three young roosters to the show (left to right: Chip, Chirp, and Zip). The coop was kind of dirty in the picture, but I cleaned it since then.
I’m going to a chicken show! It takes so much preparation like giving chickens a bath (they hate it and I hate doing it), training them for Showmanship, cleaning coops, and finding cages to transport them. Then, the chickens must be kept in the clean pen for almost a week because we had to use the only sunny day all week to bathe them (Tuesday) so they wouldn’t get cold. I’m taking four roosters, and also two hens. After all this work, I hope they do well (the show is Saturday). The chickens also are required to wear leg bands (slip-on plastic bands with numbers on them that go on the chicken’s leg) for identification at the show, but they don’t like them very much so I’ll just leave them on for one day and take the leg bands off afterwards.
The end. (For now.)
