On easter we wanna dye our handicap chicken and take her around. She's a buff orpington, and I believe she's slightly retarded. Don't ask me what she has, I'm not sure myself but she's a little off. I'm still trying to find out what she has. I want to use a safe dye that won't cause irritation. Will kool-aid work? I want her to be blue or a purple color. She's also really small and around 8 months old. She hasn't layed yet. I trim her beak often and her nails. I think purple would look good since her eyes are pink, like I said, don't ask. It's only gonna this one time so will it come out if we bathe her with warm water and dish soap? Move the thread if needed, I didn't know where to post this.
