Jell-O Dyed Birds? Almost Wordless Wednesday W/ Linky


WW camera button




We recently took a road trip to Upstate New York. One of the fun places we went to is the state fair which I will write about soon. One of the things I will never forget is the poultry section. They had these birds (I cannot for the life of me remember the name of these birds) that were colorful. Apparently they dye them with Jell-O. Yes they are live birds. It’s the neatest thing I have seen and yet weirdest thing I have seen as well.  I am not sure how good it is for the birds though but there was quite a crowd around the cage in astonishment!

Have you ever seen birds dyed in Jell-O before?

  1. Lovely colors. In my country they dye birds too. But they used something different I think. Food colors. The birds will be a pirze for fare games. #ww

  2. Wow! LOL…colorful πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks for the giggles. I love these colorful birds, and I would think jello wouldn’t be harmful.

  4. That is a site to see, very funny!

  5. Oh my! How unexpected! πŸ™‚

  6. Oh my gosh, that is way too cute!

  7. What? How! They are super cute but how on earth!

  8. Their expressions look indignant. πŸ™‚

  9. Just took a second look to make sure my eyes weren’t playing games on me!
    I wonder what the birds thought… LOL!

  10. So cool.. and crazy at the same time. I guess since jello is edible it’s safe for them??

  11. perhaps I should dye my cat.
    hmmm…maybe not

  12. They look like they are ready to lay easter eggs! I think the are a spacial kind of chicken. I have seen them but never dyed! LOL

  13. I would never have guessed that these were real. Wow.

  14. They’re adorable but am not sure dyeing them is the best idea! Maybe the people who did it should dye their hair in jello instead!

  15. Well, I’ve certainly never seen anything like those dyed birdies before!

  16. They look cool! I have never seen them before!

  17. Oh my…. cute, but really strange.

  18. Oh wow, that is too cool. I have never even heard of such a thing. thanks for sharing.

  19. Never have I until now and I am quite sure my children would love to try and dye a bird with Jello!

  20. I’ve seen Easter bunnies & baby chicks colored like this. Maybe they use the same technique. I wouldn’t think the Jell-O would hurt the birds. Who knows maybe they grow longer, harder fingernails! lol They sure do look fun and would it would be a treat to see. #WW

  21. WHAT?! Why on earth would they do that?! lol

  22. wow this looks so neat πŸ™‚

  23. I have never seen that before! Hilarious! I bet kids would have fun doing that.

  24. Aww they are simply beautiful, love the colors!

  25. Poor birds! LOL

  26. I just recently saw pink chickens. I posted a picture of them on my blog for WW a couple of weeks ago.

  27. So cute! My dad has some like these too but they are yellow.

  28. Wow! They look so soft too. I must say I like the big orange/yellow one and the small pink/purple one best.

  29. well now we need lighter chickens so we can color ours with jello. i wonder if they’ll lay colored eggs LOL

  30. Fun shot – hope the birdies don’t mind too much… πŸ™‚

  31. I can’t imagine what I would think if I saw them and didn’t know the entire back story

  32. I have never seen birds that look like those before. And colored or not, I think they look interesting!

  33. oh my…. but they sure are pretty. we use to colour our hair using Kool-Aid, so I guess it’s not that different. didn’t seem to hurt us – but then we never had it in long. it washed out with the next shower.

  34. OM Goodness those are totally cute. I’ve actually never seen anything like that before.

  35. Like you, I’m not sure how to respond to the birds. Is all this coloring safe for them? Did they give consent to be transformed into psychedelic birds? Ha!

  36. Oh my goodness! That’s hilarious!
