They're pining for the fjords!

Unless youare prepared to raise and keep/eat them, do not buy chicks.  These are usually roosters used for to make a quick buck at Easter and the although the dye is harmless, these newborn babies are plunged into it, cold and wet, so we can do something stupid.  If you are serious about raising chickens, these certainly would not be the ones to start with or the ones you want to end upstuck with.
