I put the Skittles and Mo and Curly (turkeys) out for the first time today. Decided to keep the bantys in for a little longer, mainly becasue I want to play with the Silkies




I put the turkeys out first and the little BO roo (1/2 their size) grabbed each one by the back of the neck and forced it down on the ground! No pecking, just a pin. Then he followed them around for a while until I guess he decided they were ok. He totally ignored the Skittles. I thought maybe the bright colors, plus the fact they are roos might be a problem, but nope.

Didn't catch the pin, but here is the survellience


All the others huddling in the corner afraid of the little Skittles!




But they eventually decided they weren't cannibals and came out to play

There is a turkey somewhere in this pic!


I wanna play with the bright moving chew toys!




Playtime over, NAPTIME!

I had no idea what you were talking about w/ the skittles until I saw your pics of them. Where did you get colored chicks? I've never seen the dyed ones before.

My husband works in advertising and worked on the skittles campaign many yrs ago, so I couldn't resist taking a peek at your thread.

Ideal sells chicks colored chicks and ducks at Easter time.
They inject food coloring a few days before they hatch.

Just until they grow in the adult feathers. The controversy isn't about the coloring them so mauch as the people who buy them on impulse with no clue how to take care of them and then they die from cold, wrong food, too much squeezing by little kids and the ones that do survive turn into normal looking chickens and then they don't want them anymore. Mine will all either go to the stables and join the flock there or stay with me and mine.
