hahaha did i tell u about chicken psychology?
the 2nd oldest pair of chickens from my brood had 3 baby chicks. mind u the pair are of a black n white color with some rainbow color streaked feathers.
Oddly, of all the previous hatchings, these 3 chicks emerged frm their little eggshells, 2 of a diff color.
1 was black, 1 was white and 1 was yellow. Excluding 11 full grown chickens, these 3 little ones were the latest addition to the family..but cant count them into the brood cos they died horribly.
the rooster steps on the white chick and yellow chick all the time.
i thought it had gone berzerk and separated them for awhile. Later, it started to peck on the little black one. I tried my best to remedy the situation but, in the end the white went down 1st, followed by the yellow and finally the black.
Of my couple years n months of rearing this was the only time i witnessed preference in them....hmm..tell me about humans..
