I would love to own one of these, just to see if the pigment is coming out of the feather if i add water on it :D

Why should it? That wouldn't make sense at all ;)

I heard turacos are the only birds which have natural green and red pigments in their feathers and that if you soak a feather in a glass of water, the water turns pink! I would like to see myself if it's true :D

But that wouldn't make sense because they wouldn't be that colourful then anymore. They live in rainforests with lots of rain... and feathers are covered with an oil to make them water-repellend.

I don't know, it's just what I read on many sites and that's why I was so curious to try.
And about the rain...
It is often assumed that this coloration will wash out when the birds are bathing or after heavy rains, but this is true only if the water used for bathing happens to be very alkaline. Source, [link] .
I'm not implying that what is written on Wikipedia is necessarily true, but as i said before i wanted to try this little experiment and see for myself.
