    I just saw on ebay someone is selling directions to coloring your chicks in the egg. It says it is not harmful to the chick and it has a picture of all different colors of chicks.

    I thought this was not allowed anymore. How can you do something to an egg without compromising it?

    I just haven't seen this before on there and just wanted to get your oppinion.

    Wait I didn't say I was going to do it. I just didn't think they did it anymore and wanted to see if people still did it.

    First let me say I think its horrible that they do this at all but I had no clue that they colored them before they hatched. I always thought they used powdered food color or something when the chickies were still kinda wet. How do they do it anyway?
