This may be a first time question. No matter where I place my white plastic lawn chairs, the birds find them, perch on them and then mess on them.. Are there any colors that birds dislike as suggestions for repainting the chairs? Thanks or your help in advance.

That is an interesting question.
Unfortunately, we are not aware of research done that color influences where birds perch and 'drop'.
You could try asking the Department of Natural Resources at their Wildlife Hotline to see if they have ideas about this : 877-463-6497.
