    Ok, so I'm new, I surely hadn't seen EVERYTHING but I NEVER imagined seeing THIS at the county fair! OMG! It's so funny! The really funny part is that I'm part of a couple of "pink" organizations and I just couldn't wait to show my fellow pink girls the pink chicken! But then I thought... have BYC'ers seen a pink chicken? Well.. if you hadn't NOW you have!

    Isn't that just fascinating? How do you DYE a chicken?

    it's done with food coloring...illegal to sell or even display a dyed chicken in some states.
    can cause dangerous scenarios when housed with others as they may pick at the dyed chickens.

    That actually looks like a "show-BOY" more than a showgirl. I hope they have poultry shrinks, he might have some issues to deal with [​IMG]

    The chicken did not get any prize this show, but was in the section for experienced showers. it said showgirl on the cage, I don't know enough to know that's a boy! that's also very funny!! Poor boy.

    I think it's a hoot! Not something I would do, but still a hoot to look at!​

    That is how they mark baby chicks so they know who their parents are etc.

    When the eggs are in the incubator they take a needle, and inject food coloring. Which causes the down to be colored. The coloring goes away after the chicks loose their down.
