I snapped these photos at a provincial market in Bohol a few months ago but forgot to post them. Aren’t they adorable? For some reason, I always assumed chicks were yellow in color, one of those stereotypes that probably started soon after birth, while watching cartoons on television. At any rate, in my single digits, I was fascinated (but now mortified) whenever I ran across multi-colored chicks at markets or heavily populated shopping areas. Turns out they were dyed green, blue or red — and meant to entice young brats to whine until their parents got them one. Yikes.
These chicks seemed to be naturally tan to dark brown in color. And they grow up to be tan or dark brown in color as well… I forgot the name the vendor had for them. But I just wanted to post these photos to remind myself that not all baby chickens are yellow. :)
