Does anyone use a hair dryer to "fluff" orpingtons like you would a cochin? I just air dried mine the other day and they maybe didn't come up as fluffy as when hair dryer dried. Any other tips for fluffiness? A cochin breeder has me using fabric softener in a final rinse. Seems to help a bit. Makes them smell nice if nothing else. Thanks

Air drying is good if the weather will let you. If not I use a livestock blow drier, I just use half the power. They will dry alot faster than a small hair drier. On buffs if you have them in a clean pen, sometime I just spot wash. I think it's better to wash 2 or 3 days before to let the feather back in placed. Just my thoughts.
