From what I have read from fellow BYC members...
Pink and Red are the colors they like most.
My coop has been painted a colour between Barn Red & Tomato Red. I like the color and didn't consult anyone except DH. Then I read here, they like Red -
Which goes against anything I have read about colors....
Bright colors promote excitement and fun. Warm colors are soothing.
Dark colors promote depression and Red promotes Anger...
I'm not sure how colors affect Chickens... but it appears Red makes them happy.
I would like to see what others think.
Yes, pretty well.
This is very interesting! I also would like to know what others think. Sorry I can't give an answer.
I think red makes them hungry! (see posts about red nail polish and ladybugs)
color must be part of their lives...check out this article....
contact lenses for chickens!!!!(just so you know, i am not advocating this...just saw about the color...read to the bottom...you will see that it is stated, nothing beats proper housing...)
edited for disclaimer...didn't want you all to think i am advocating this!
Yes, they can
General rule of thumb.
Prey animals can see in color.
Predators generally see the world more in black and white.
I forgot where I read that.
Makes sense when you think about it.
For example, the zebra evolved it's stripes to confuse it's predators as they see mainly black and white. When attacked the zebras run, of course, and the black and white stripes all moving very quickly in a herd has a confusing affect on the attacker.
