Definitely COLOR!

Mine will fight each other like piranha for a tiny speck of red cranberry skin in a bowl of mixed grains and oatmeal.
I rest my case.

May all your eggs be fertile,
   May your predators be few,
      May your hens be fat and happy,
         And your ribbons all be blue.

They actually have better vision than people.

Show chickens something red, especially a sore, they will attack it. Chickens nearly killed one of my hens after the rooster rode her raw.
