What’s Better Than Dyed Eggs?

Dyed chicks. (Baby chickens, not girls.) And yes, this is apparently a thing that people are doing. Reactions seem to range from “ZOMG that is SO cute!” to “ZOMG that is horrible!” The practice goes back at least 2004, which is when the BBC reported on an Alaskan farm hatching colored chicks — again, not talking about black hotties. The farmers in question inject non-toxic dye into eggs a few weeks before they hatch; presumably, the dye sloshes around with the other fluids inside the egg and eventually covers the chick all over. Whatever the process is, they come out all dyed up.

 

 

 

Oops, wrong kind of dyed chicks
