    sooooooooooooo. My kids 5 and 3 go outside every morning at 6am. My son(5) opens the coops and feeds them. Well this morning they came back a little later than normal and this is what i see....





    I couldnt figure it out where the colors came from and they werent telling. It then dawned on me........... John Deere Green and Allis Chalmers range. They got into my spray paint. The purple was teh blue kote. Anywho. They painted a bantam I had to end up putting down. Ive got a white duccle they got with the blue kote, hes now purple.

    Paint in its eyes, beak, mouth. feathers, etc. It was staggering around. They were not to happy that it was there fault I had to kill the chicken because of something they did. It only took 3 hours to get her clean lol.

    I'm sorry but it is a good way to learn a lesson....good for you for caring enough to let them learn consequences to their actions....I bet she won't do it again.

    Kids test EVERYTHING. I guess the loss of one bird from an experiment like that isn't TOO bad. I knew blue kote was involved from the post title.....
