That makes sense if they fed it something. What doesn't make sense is how only those feathers (which a mineral block couldn't get to) got dyed... :SThe usual culprit behind the "pink budgie!!!" "orange budgie!!" "NEW COLOURED [email protected]!" threads or rumors are usually mineral blocks. Although some people have been known to feed their budgies diets adulterated with dyes and other colour additives that can affect skin/feather colour.
aw ive wondered why ive seen white Flamingos..now it all makes senceI know in zoos they feed the flamingos carrot juice to keep their "pink " color . In the wild it comes from the crustaceans that they eat and would fade if not fed the carrot juice. It could be something like a lot of carrots in the diet at the time the feathers were growing in. Or it could of been fed red factor canary food. I wonder if that would dye the feathers to? Either way it is striking.
