Different reasons for different birds and colors..
White and yellow are difficult to keep clean in any species
as babys but do better as they grow up.
The cinnamon or split to cinnamon look like a dirty green to
me so thats genetics.
Daily baths for our blue and green kids and all other babys
most important. In late fall I reduce to 3 times a week
until spring time.
Diet has much to do with feather condition as it does our
own hair. A good seed mix, some pellets (I only give a few
and not everyday), cuttlebone, millet spray to start then
the fresh veggies and cooked foods.
