Colorful Chicks Bring Easter Smiles

By  | 

Some people dress their pets for the holidays. At least one local store is selling dyed chicks, for Easter. America's Country Store, in Wellborn, sells several hundred of them this time each spring.

The chicks are sprayed with food coloring a day or so after they're born. Once their feathers come in, they grow out of their color. Store employees say the dyed chicks and colored ducks, as well as the regular chicks and ducks, are a big hit this time of the year.
