This is my first time showing chickens but my uncle has shown them all his life and he takes a cloth and soaks it with butter milk and rubs down all feathers and then uses a sponge with butter milk and grabs feet then pulls down gently and wraps chicken in towel and transports to the show to be sure that all feathers are in place an wins in the top three.
