Ok, so I have seen these dyed chicks for a few years now at my local feed store and today I saw a video on CNN.com about it. The video was about this guy in Rhode Island who had his chicks conviscated by the SPCA because they are apparently illegal because of cruelty issues. I have learned of the dying method and I don't necessarily agree with it but I don't see it as being entierly cruel. I do see the problem of marketing them for easter gifts which are many times later abandoned or neglected. I was just wondering what the rest of you guys thought about the issue?
