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.

karmaplus: I Asked my 9 year old cousin Emma if she wanted to be on the phone with me when she watched DW tonight. She’s only allowed to stay up late when DW is on - it’s on an hour later here in Denmark, timezones yo. (she has watched all episodes in the past year and I introduced her yay!)
But her response broke my heart:
“no he’s making fun of Clara. She’s not fat, mom says. He’s not nice. I don’t like it anymore.”
Her mom then told me Emma had asked her if ‘she was big and had big hips? and if the doctor wouldn’t like her either?’
Her mom said “but the doctor loves Clara!”
she then simply responded “no, that’s not how you treat friends. I would be told off in school if I did that.”
and that’s basically all have to say. My almost 9 year old’s biggest hero has made her feel fat. Please, Moffat, can’t you write one single episode without making sexist jokes. Please. Please.
