The Rainbow Chicken

When we were at the fair in August, the girls and I took a walk over to the rabbit and poulty exhibit barn. We stumbled upon this glorious creature:
I was AMAZED by this chicken. The owner said she had taken the same dye that you'd use on a dog and colored the chicken's feathers. Notice the dyed egg in the picture, it was dyed in that glittery, sparkly Easter egg dye. The whole cage seemed to glow. If I could have a whole flock of these rainbow chickens that actually laid sparkly rainbow eggs, I'd quit my teaching job, force Dave and Dad to sell the cattle, and we'd turn our beef farm into a chicken farm faster than you can say "cock-a-doodle-doo." End of Story. Want me to tell it again?
