Pranked by Nephews

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So, after two of my nieces gave my sisters and I makeovers last night, my teenage nephews thought it would be funny to put makeup (eyeliner or mascara I think) on my chickens combs.  It scared my this morning, because I thought they had developed frostbite overnight (our weather was just cold enough to make that theoretically possible).  I did try to get it off with a warm washcloth, but it didn't come off very well.  I expect the answer is no, but wanted to check if there is any harm in letting it wear off naturally?

At least they didn't break out the rit dye, and make the birds purple or something.

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

Your birds should be fine, just wipe if off as well as you can and it will come off naturally over time. I used a sharpy marker to draw a dot on one of my hens combs to tell the difference between her. It came off naturally over about 3 days.
I have 14 hens. 4 Buff Orpingtons named Yellowfeet, Speedy, Cupcake and Funnchick, 1 Red sex-link named Henny, 1 production red named Doris, 1 Dominique named Pilot,1 Golden laced wyandotte named Wattles, 3 EEs named Broody, Hammy and Feathers and 3 Cuckoo Marans Named David, Cow and Coopy. *-*
