Can they be any breed, or is there one certain breed that is normally used?

I believe they are Leghorns, but I could be wrong.

I know there was a person on BYC that actually purchased one of these dyed chicks. She chronicled his growth. Lost all the pink once he lost is baby feathers. He was a White Leghorn. Not saying they don't do Cornish x chicks though. smile.png

I would bet on leghorns because they are so purely white.  They don;t have any pigment at all in their feathers so they would probably pick up any color at all.
