•salt and pepper
•1 carrot, cut into tiny matchsticks, for the beaks
•several black olives, cut into tiny pieces for the eyes
Set out several bowls or ziploc bags. Add some water to each bag and tint with food coloring to the desired shades. Place several hard-boiled eggs in each container and set aside until the desired color is achieved. Remove eggs from the dye and set aside on paper towels to dry.
Cut a small slice from both ends of each egg. Set aside. These will be the “hats” of the chicks. Cut each egg in half with a zig-zag cut.
Remove the yolks from the eggs and mash with the mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper, to taste. Or make the filling according to your usual deviled egg recipe.
Pipe the filling into each egg half. Add carrots and olives for the beaks and eyes. Top with the “hats”.
