    I have some of these green eyed Whites and silver tipped and cream necked peas but all of mine are compliments of mother nature and white mask all colors and can not turn around and grow a color from blood supply to feathers and also all these colors appear per molt when the feathers no longer have a blood supply they have never came in any other color than white when their new feathers come in , it is what it is ..Good luck with that green eyed white ....

    Just 10 seconds in a 10% bleach solution then rinse in fresh water and no more algae

    I have seen the same thing at another breeder's place on a free-range white peacock. It is just dirty feathers.

    The feed store near me had a whole bunch like this year before last. Corn maybe?

    It does not take a lot of corn to turn them yellow, but that yellow? That was quite a bit of corn. Buttercup would be a good name for him.
