    Ok. I have this crazy idea on food coloring.
    what would happen if I put blue food coloring in my chickens
    water. I think it will turn there eggs blue and their poop.
    anyboty know of a down side to this,I will make sure it is the kitchen kind so its not poisoness. Im going to walmart tomamrow morning and I will get the coloring.
    thanks tayler.

    Don't mix red and blue together, or you'll wind up with a PurpleChicken!

    I would imagine that the color would be processed out by the liver, however it may make fried livers a tad interesting.

    My hypothesis...it will just turn their poo funny colors.

    My human kids eat fruit loops from time to time and it makes their poo technicolor, but doesn't change their egg shell color at all.
