In the Brooder
- Feb 12, 2013
I'm not sure what the popular opinion is on Easter dyed chicks, but seeing a brooder full of brightly colored puffballs at my local feed store was a little too much for me to resist, reguardless of how many chicks I had back home. So, I made some excuse about getting it for my three year old (even though I knew she would love it as much as I did) and picked out a little feather-footed chick dyed bright blue. I assumed it was a cochin, because it has yellow legs, and is a standard size chick. My feed store usually gets their chicks from Cackle, so now that the chick is getting real feathers in that are not dyed blue, I was hoping someone could help guess what its true colors are beneath its dye job.
