I listed some baby chicks on CL last year and forgot all about Easter. Some woman emailed me and said she wanted some cute chicks to put in her kids Easter basket. Needless to say, I told her absolutely not.
Here Here! I soooo want to scream that everytime I am in TSC and see some small child convince a grandparent that they need a chick, duck, or bunny. I even tried to intervene last year with a woman buying her son one chick. I said "They have a minimun limit of 6" Didn't phase her! She left with one chick, no heat lamp. Poor chick was probably dead before they got it home.....Hopefully not but......
Unless you plan on giving them a forever home with everything that goes along with caring for them.
I total agree with this regarding every animal...and sometimes thinks humans need to hear this about their offspring as well, but thats a whole other subject.
