Color discrimination by InKibus Color discrimination by InKibus
This is NOT meant in anyway to profile a stereotype or enhance anything about race and creed.
I post this as sort of conceptual commentary.
If it's offensive in any way, please tell me how.

I was photoing chickes for stock pics for my stock account at ~InKi-Stock

I had groups shots, and weird...
the white ones glommed together, and stared at the little lost black one.

Bird of a feather, I suppose.

This one could go on the "include" list, too.

Thanks! I did work at these shots, though the chickies did a surprising amount of 'natural' acting for me.

Thanks! It was interesting to capture these birds reacting to one another like that.

Thanks! Don't worry, I got him back with his buddies right after this. ;) They are arucanas, the 'Easter Egg' chickens which also tend to have fluffy footies and cheek-puffs.

nice shot and I do find it interesting that the little black chick didn't go back to join the others. When mine were chicks we had some yellow ones, some black ones, and some brown ones and they all just kinda hung out =P

Thnaks! Normally chickies don't care, but then you get weird cases of a specific color becoming a target.
We just had a bizarre case of a dark banty hen we gave 4 eggs to hatc.
3 of the babies were dark, one white, and they all lived in a brooder in the backroom with only and overhead light.
After several days, we moved the group to a large well-l;it pen...
and she started chasing the white baby around.
I did everything I could, and the baby was terrified and confused.
She just had enough light then, and apparently there was enough and animal as 'dumb'
as a chicken to recognize that the dark babies would be heres, but this was a fluke!
Unnerving to say the least.

Thanks! It was so strange, I kept waiting for that little dark one to run to the others...
but it was like there was some sort of negativity between them!

That IS strange, very strange ..
Later on did the dark one join the yellows ?
Or was it still the same ? D;

When I put them back in the brooder together, everyone sudden;y was back to being normal care-free chickies. Still, I suppose when their environment got strange, it was time to vote some-one out, and the light ones voted the dark one out of the game!
