    I know many of you have done this already. Yesterday Husband was putting in strawberries and he found a small snake with his shovel. I told him to give it to the chickens.

    Then I went to the grocery store. I got a couple heads of cabbage for the chickies because they love it. Red was on sale, so I got that.

    This morning we have NEON turquoise poop in the coop. At first I thought it was the snake, but it's the cabbage.

    It's gross and cool at the same time.

    Like the iridescent green on a mallard drake.
    No, not necklaces, probably earrings or boleros though

    You should take a picture. Sounds like chicken art. LOL My birds are never creative like that.

    purple food dye results in neon green poop. drink about a gallon of grape kool-aid and watch what happens.

    purple food dye = red cabbage

    Quote:I once got drunk on cheap Kiwi fruit licquour - and every single bodily secretion for 48 hours afterwards was lime green! I had to throw away the white shirt I was wearing, as, to my horror, the armpits got dyed (I was in Spain at the height of a heatwave at the time, honestly!) [​IMG]

    That would be a fun one to explain to the cleaners.

    Um, yeah man, it was the kiwi stuff. No, I didn't grow up near Roswell. Or Oak Ridge. Or Hanford.
