A family of blue chickens are ostracized from their white flock just for being a bit different. But when a prowling fox arrives, they quickly learn to focus on what they all have in common rather than what separates them. 'Colourful Feathers' is a delightful animated short on the importance of seeing past the superficial differences that divide us—and instead, trying to recognise the traits that unite us all.
