    I think they used dye for the chicks! I know it's terrible, but it is ADORABLE!!!

    The problem with that is that people buy them as a novelty, then realize they have to take care of them. These dyed chicks usually wind up dead because people don't know they need heat, special food, etc. And the poop, ALOT. I would rather they didn't dye them and sold them to people who know and want chickens.

    They really are colorful I would want to know how to dye them but I would not want to sell them for the same reason debi explained.

    I know. It's just terrible. It's really sad, actually.

    I would think that the dyed chicks would be messed up and weak after the dye. How do they do that?

    This is the reason why you can't buy fewer than 6 chicks in my county. We have to
    * find people on craiglist to share orders (which is how I met coffeelady3)!
    * go to another county
    * order online
