    it's a silver with either sun bleached feathers or what ever he is eating is turning his feathers yellow, such as corn, corn can turn white feathers yellow

    depends is the yellowing only on top of the feathers? sun bleached feathers are caused by being in the sun, my parents have several sun bleached white birds and my self blue is even sun bleached from last year.
