    Can they be any breed, or is there one certain breed that is normally used?

    I believe they are Leghorns, but I could be wrong.

    I know there was a person on BYC that actually purchased one of these dyed chicks. She chronicled his growth. Lost all the pink once he lost is baby feathers. He was a White Leghorn. Not saying they don't do Cornish x chicks though. [​IMG]

    I would bet on leghorns because they are so purely white. They don;t have any pigment at all in their feathers so they would probably pick up any color at all.
