colored chicks on display

OK, there are some things in this world that are just plain wrong, and I’d say that displays full of green, pink, red, blue, and purple chicks firmly fits into that category. Luckily (for the chicks), the dyed down is replaced by normal baby plumage in about two weeks, so they won’t grow up looking like complete freakshows.


The yahoo photo comes from Jordan, I see. The problem with this as a Easter or spring festive thing is that most people don’t want to keep adolescent, no-longer-cute chickens as pets, but aren’t honest enough to just kill the chicken and eat it.
