How do they make chicks green, pink, orange, blue ect?
And has anyone tried it?
food coloring bath.
I leave Crayola Washable markers in the coop, I come back and everyone is a different color.

I do it every year around Easter with a paint brush and food color...I DO NOT dip the chicks as I think thats cruel. Then use a close dryer on low so they dont get a chill. The hatcheries inject the eggs.
SERIOUSLY!!!!!! That just kind of seems wrong some how.
Aren't chicks pretty enough without turning them into lurid shades of pink, green, orange etc?
People who do it for identification of the chick inject the egg before hatching...I think I read about it in Storey's, had a pretty detailed description of how to do it. People who hatch large numbers of different breeds of chicks in one bator assign each breed a color...obviously only works for light colored chicks! Not something I plan on attempting!!!
