I know that these are probably so un animal friendly but it made me smile! These pics are pinched from a friend of a friends blog (I hope she doesn't mind!)Aparently the day before the chicks hatch, they take an infant needle and inject food coloring into the egg. The chicks hatch like this!! The coloring leaves as the chicks grow and get new feathers.
There were even little ducks! I'd love a baby duck! Maybe I will have some in the future and they will swim up to my loch side house that I will one day (if I'm lucky!) have!!
