Am thinking of showing a few of my pekins and was wondering if someone can give me a few pointers in show preparation. Meaning beside washing them is there anything else I need to do and what is the best sort of shampoo to use

Any cheap human shampoo will work fine. Make sure you don't wash them too close to show day, as it takes a few days for the birds to preen their plumage back in shape.

On show day, a quick feet scrub, and wipe. also rub some baby oil (or olive oil) on the comb and feet (dont get it on the feathers), and rub any excess off with a rag.

Good luck with it.

ps the article Lucy mentioned is also available on the BYP server http://www.backyardpoultry.com/index.ph ... owing.html I should update it, as its been on the internet for 12 years.
