My 14 year old son came home from school today and told me that his agriculture teacher told the class that if you color an egg with a Sharpie marker the chick that hatches will be the color of the marker, albeit temporarily... This sounds absolutely ludicrous on so many levels...for one thing, how would the marker seep through the shell? If it did, wouldn't it be harmful to the little developing chick? Sigh... Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking his school may be needing a new Ag teacher.
