    My white silkies are always dirty. Their little tophat is always wet from trying to dunk their head in the waterer [​IMG]

    Dirty Birdies [​IMG] My BR is rather messy, maybe cause she is so large she cannot preen......

    I picked a white cochin to be my "pet" chicken that will get to live our her life with us while the others are only being kept for as long as they're laying well. I wish I would have known how GROSS her fluffy feet would be though! I've got to imagine that most breeds with fluffy feet are going to be dirty unless their bedding is changed pretty much daily or they live on wire floors.

    My white cochin has been surprisingly clean, even her feet are not that bad......

    Pacific northwest = rain = no such thing as a "white" leghorn. More like "dirt colored".

    Blue wyandotte - perhaps because she's the lightest colored of the flock.

    Oddly enough, my two black australorps - we get a lot of dust and they are the dustbathing queens of the yard.

    My frizzled cochin.

    I thought I had a black and one white but she I think she ran away...but there is this new black and grey one out there with the flock so I guess we'll just call it even [​IMG]
