    I am getting my guys ready for the State Fair this coming weekend.
    Does anyone have any good ideas for getting their white a little whiter? They are pretty clean and tidy at the moment, but would like to brighten them a bit.

    Thanks much

    I know most places I've read about Pekin is that they should be white with a bit of a yellow tone. Mine seem to have it, I feed them corn and wheat and they free range. Most time just give them a tub to bath in and keep the water clean and they will get themselves cleaned up to go.
