I read that chickens are attracted to the color red. If I wear red clothing when raising baby chicks, will they become less wary of people, or even friendlier?

that's a good ? and I'd b interested to hear some1's opinion on that. I know that I had a few bug bites on my arms a few weeks ago when they were still in the brooder and of course they were red becuz I was scratching them
and they kept jumping up trying to peck me on those spots!

I sometimes wore my red plaid pajamas when I went down at night to give them their cuddles before bedtime and some of them started to dust bathe on them. They seemed to like that red plaid flannel!

I've noticed that they are quite sensitive to color. When we have new pullets in the barn it takes them quite while to get used to us walking through the barn. I typically wear jeans and a darker colored t-shirt, but I notice that they will freak out and be quite flighty when I am wearing brighter clothes.
