Silly-Frilly Chicken Is Wearing the Green !

 Of course chickens don't wear clothes, so what's a chick to do to put on the green for St. Patrick's Day ?
 
 Dye her frilly feathers !
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you !
* This little frizzled hen had large mud clumps stuck to her feet and I needed to give her a bath. After shampooing her I rinsed her in warm water with green food coloring added to it.The food coloring will not harm her or her feathers.

She is adorable! I had no idea chickens were given baths and had their muddy feet cleaned - just like my dog.

She looks gorgeous and your comments took me back to when I kept chickens. They used to get clumpy, muddy feet too and I washed them like you said. Thing was I didn't know if I was supposed to do that! So nice to hear that you do it too. Now I don't feel so stupid!
