To all Tumblr users cooing over the “harmless” process of dying little baby chicks festive colors so you can celebrate Easter:
- Many of these chickens are given back within a week after Easter
- After they are given back to farms, they are put in with other chickens
- These chickens reject the neon chickens, because they look different
- The neon chickens are then bullied and pecked, often to death.
When you think about it, the behavior of the non-neon chicks makes perfect sense. If we were to suddenly see highlighter-colored humans walking the streets, we’d shun them, too.
It’s actually illegal in 13 states. If you want to watch a video clip on it, here you go.
