    I came across these guys in the bird market in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It was a startling sight. Several emotions ran through me in quick succession: amazement, pity, anger, resignation. Several hours later, this is what I'm thinking: 1) many people in my home town, Berkeley, California, dye their hair these colors; 2) they will probably soon be satay ayam (grilled chicken skewers found everywhere around here, served with a delicious spicy peanut sauce).

      Tom Schwabel pdxsafariguy - Thanks! I believe that the dye is injected into the eggs and the chicks come out these colors when they hatch.
