Brotherly Love and Coloring Eggs

We used eggs from my parents chickens.  They were all some shade of brown, which are a bit more difficult to get the "right" color than the white ones, but it was still fun!  Some of the color flaked off and I'm not sure if it was because they were farm eggs?  We used a gel food color instead of liquid food color?  Some other reason?  This effect worked best on the green egg of Alex's because it looked a bit like camo.

Aren didn't get to participate in decorating eggs but he did get to choose his colors, then we dyed them for him - see his tiny two in the back?
The middle two, with pipe-cleaners as a) a shirt and b) a scarf, are Ajays.  The green and red on the bottom right are Alex's.

That's very interesting that the color wouldn't stick. Hmmm
