    Hello!

    I am new here. I am looking to rent a few chicks for a children's Easter Party in Los Gatos, CA (near San Jose, CA). Children would pet and gently handle the chicks for 2 hours one afternoon in April while being supervised closely.

    I cannot commit to raising chicks so I thought renting them would be a better option. Please let me know if you have any contacts. I've tried mobile animal services but they seem to only service weekend parties and this party is on a Friday. My budget is small but please negotiate.

    Thank you!

    The kids would love it but, it would be very stressful to the chicks.

    Maybe the kids would enjoy a small stuffed chick toy they could take home with them more than live ones they'd only see for a couple hours?
