    What is the best way to get my white Silkie's feet/leg feathers white again? They are terribly soiled and shampoo isn't cleaning them. I think they are stained.

    You could try some Shout stain remover spray. Spray it on and let it sit a couple min. and wash it out. May get some of the staining out if it isnt too bad.

    You may need to bathe them several times. Rinse in white vinegar and let it set on the feathers. As was suggested, laundry stain remover. Also tide with bleach alternative is supposed to be good (but I have not tried it).
