    I've been experimenting with coloring some of my extra Leghorns for Easter.
    I've tried bleach, peroxide, lead paint, spray paint, airbrushing. I usually end
    up with dead chickens. Hey, they are only chickens anyways. Who cares.
    This batch I colored with a blend of enamel and gasoline.

    First you clean the feathers by dipping in gas, unleaded only. We don't want
    to poison them with lead.

    Then I dry them off with a heat gun.

    The ones that survive get dipped, head first, into an enamel paint.

    Dry them in the microwave for 10 seconds. Any more than that cooks their
    insides and makes a mess in the microwave.

    Oh, always wear gloves if you are trying this at home.


    With a lot of practice and plenty of extra chicks you can have these wonderful
    colored animals to help celebrate Easter.

    Be careful, if the temp on the heat gun is too high, you end up with Chicken Nuggets Flambe!
