    How do you all keep your White Silkies so clean and white? Mine loves to dust bathe and can't seem to keep her 'powder puff' clean. She was looking very yellow around neck and head, so I gave her a bath but that yellow stain on her feathers does not want to go away. I used puppy shampoo.

    I do not no how it would work on chickens but my sister used woolite on her sheep to keep them white.

    I read somewhere that the yellowing in white silkies is fading from the sun. So more shade for your chooks?
