    Entering a lavender coloured araucana and a lavender coloured turkey neck in an upcoming show and was wondering if anyone knows whats best to wash them in.
     
  2. I would wash them like I would a white bird. If you want to put a TINY amount of bluing in the final rinse, it might be of some help...but you don't want it to be obvious to the judge.

    I would use a blueing shampoo, like Wonder Blue and dilute it a lot before i got it on the bird.
