Fuzzy, I would think the yellowing is the result of the sun and it has turned the white in the birchen coloring brassy looking. Sorry no cure for that other than molting out and protecting from the damaging rays of the sun.

Bummer - yes he's sun bleached just not all the white on him. I am sure he will start to molt after I send my entries in for the fairs! Embarassed

Fuzzy are you going to a fair somewhere? Didn't know that there was a poultry show going on somewhere, wanna email me and tell me about it? Is there a pigeon and poultry club show somewhere that I didn't hear about? Have a wonderful day, CynthiaM.

Daughter uses a special shampoo to keep her artificially blonde hair from becoming (gasp!) brassy. I'm wondering if washing your chicken with such a product might keep things their original colour?

Older ladies used to blue their hair to take the yellow out of their grey. Gave some of them that nice lavender coloured hair - laundry is the same way, non bleach whiteners are bluing of some sort.

No idea of whether it would work on feathers.

ha Tara you make me Very Happy

I would not even bother but the little dude is so freaken cute and is relativly good feather condition considering the time of year. Plus a certian 5 year old boy loves him and can recognize his crow!

It funny because in certian light (and far away) the white on him looks white. Then in certian light close up he looks bleached in some areas.

I had a grey horse I competed on as a teenager. His pre show bathing routine was 2 shampoos with baby shampoo and 1 or 2 ( depending)shampoos with this stuff I uses to buy from the drug store that was a "silver and blond" inhancer. The trick was to only let it sit long enough and get it off before he turned purple!

We will see if he goes to the fairs Shocked
