    Blue is best, it helps to whiten the birds a little better.

    Cool. I wouldn't have guessed.

    I have been showing dogs for a long time now and know that people often use bleach on their white dogs. Would this be suitable for chickens?

    I wouldn't suggest using bleach. It can burn their skin and feathers, plus it's toxic, so ingesting it could be fatal.
