SO MANY HUMMINBIRB

HUMMING BIRD INTENSIFIES

Oh my gosh! So many hummers! How do you do that?! How can one make them to get along? I put a feeder in my backyard and the hummingbirds kept fighting each other over it. And they were only four or five of them (counting the one I released). What is this trickery?! >:C

Just one of those things that I always wondered about. Stags and otters are all very well, but what if you end up with a tiny chameleon or giant blue whale? I mean, it could be a giant tub of nutella…

Anyway, so glad I got around to doing this pic -drawing the less attractive animals was awesome.

Popped it up on Redbubble because they have tote bags and cushions now which is just wow - can grab it also on cards or posters - check it out here!

Yay for exotic patronuses! I would like for my patronus to take either the form of a velociraptor, a phoenix, a mewtwo or articuno. How awesome would that be XD

Coloring embryos by injecting dye into eggs before they hatch has been practiced for a number of years. It is done to identify the young of certain hatches or groups. And it makes it easier to observe movements of wild birds (especially water fowl) after they leave the nests.

The process of coloring chicks by injecting dye into the eggs also provides an opportunity to study early feather growth. Juvenile plumage will replace the colored down in about two weeks. As this happens, the dyed background amid new growing feathers provides a constantly changing pattern.

While it is possible to inject eggs from about the 10th to 19th days of incubation, the period from the 11th to 14th days appears to be ideal. Only one treatment is necessary if the injection is done at this time. When injections are made after the 14th day the color usually remains localized because the embryo occupies most of the egg; so it may be necessary to inject the egg in more than one place.

Harmless vegetable dyes, such as food coloring dyes sold in grocery stores, work very satisfactorily.

This does not harm the chicks in any way, and eventually as they mature their adult feathers push through and they develop normally with their standard coloured feathers.

The coloring is really interesting but just watch this video because it’s a bunch of chicks chasing a shiny piece of wrapper and it’s so freaking adorable.

Your daily rainbow chick foil fight video.

Ha! Cute.

So that’s how they do it? Somehow I get the feeling that’s not the case for the ones sold in markets around the world. Anyway, this brought back good childhood memories. I had a colored chick when I was a kid and always wondered how they colored them.
