    I know of one breeder that does that and if the breakout is bad he uses a whitening toothpaste with peroxide to control it. I guess it's a thing, I just stickem as I hate to see the breakout.

    I read that dark legged birds have a little higher than norm resistance. While dark skinned birds are **** near immune.

    I was confident of that, when I had birds in Florida it was a real problem. Had to do it and early before they even see the outdoors.
