Animals aren't toys
The calls start coming in a few days after Easter, harried parents trying to unload the bunnies and chicks their kids got for the holiday. Many of the animals, separated from their mothers too young so store owners can capitalize on the "cute" factor, don't survive long enough to find new homes. Many die from improper feeding or handling by children. Other parents don't bother to call. They dump the animals in the wild, where they're unlikely to survive.
To discourage people from buying them as pets, some farm centers will sell no fewer than 6 chicks to an individual. That's a start.
If your child wants a chick or rabbit for Easter, please say no.
