    Yes they do see color but they do not have good night vision.

    Yes they most certainly do, here is a test for you. Go out to the coop/run wearing RED toenail polish with flip flops and you will have your answer.

    No need for the polish, just go out there with flip flops on. You'll end up doing the "Hat Dance". [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It seems evident that they see red, but they may not see blue, as in a blue light bulb, from what I have read.
