So I have 6 white silkie chicks that are about 4 weeks old. I can't even begin to tell those little suckers apart. One little white fuzzy thing looks like another. I was thinking to use a Q-tip and dap a spot of each color out of the dye kit on the chick's topknot. Can you think of any reason this would be bad for them? Theoretically the dye is food safe and if my fingers were any indication, it is relatively permanent. I don't want to hurt them for sure, but I would like to be able to identify them individually. Thanks! edited to add that I don't particularly want to leg band them if I can avoid it. Zip ties can be sharp and I imagine it would be aggrevating to the chicks.
