I recently found out my 4 mo. old bantam Delaware pullet is a cockerel! She went from Della to Dell in less than 3 minutes!
Now, I have been advised to use feed made of white corn to preserve his brilliant white plumage and white flesh.
We live in NW Iowa, right in yellow corn country, and I simply do not know where to start.
Can anyone supply me with some ideas? Names?
Thanks for your time.

I don't think you need white corn to have white flesh. White Flesh and feathers come from their genetic make-up not from one feed source. If you want to try have corn in your feed, then mix the corn in with the pellets/crumbles they are currently eating. I can't give you any names of white corn producers
-I don't know any.

Quote:I was advised to use white corn to keep the feathers stark white, yellow corn will tint them. I mis-spoke in reference to the flesh.
