Chickens are often attracted to the colour red. That's why a bird with a bleeding wound should be separated from the others, because they will peck it and make it worse.

Then again, they peck just about anything colourful and shiny....

I'll second that. I also should add that when their Irish is up a rooster may try to fight the spinning knives of a red frail mower as well as attack a red lawn mower. I call that being attracted to the color red. However, I have never seen the same rooster flog a frail mower more than one time. I should also add that the mower was victorious every time.


This attraction to red is also why the little spot on chicken wateriers that the bird must peck to get a drink are all red, just thought you would want to know.

Try this little experiment.  Paint one fingernail red and the other 4 (?) blue.  Then see which finger nail your chicks peck or display interest in.
Omg haha!!!! Love this idea! And I like how there is a question mark after other four. Haha :) yes I do have five fingers. :3 lol thank you so much!!
