Feathers turn orange when wet
by: The Avian Vet

This does not sound normal. However, wet feather refract light differently and may show color changes when wet. Otherwise this is not normal. Colored toys can cause feather discoloration too. I recommend that you take your bird to see an avian veterinarian.
