    I gave my chickies yogurt today. They peck at the yogurt for a bit, then go peck at the cardboard walls of the brooder, which leaves a streak of yogurt on the wall. So of course, every chick in the area runs over and pecks at the streak. I think they're doing it on purpose. [​IMG]

    It's like chicken fingerpainting! (or, um...beak painting). [​IMG]

    maybe I should put some food coloring in the yogurt and let them beak paint on some art paper, then sell the resulting "artwork" for millions! I think I just figured out step two... [​IMG]

    It's a good plan; abstract expressionist works done by animals are quite popular. [​IMG]

    I like it!

    One of my former cats used to make toilet paper sculptures. She was always very proud of her work, too.

    Can you imagine? The chick painting craze that would ensue would be truly shocking.

    Quote:Even better, not only would someone apply but they could get it too.
