Happy Easter & Colored Chicks


Ever had the urge to get a blue or pink colored chick/duck or rabbit at Easter? We went to the local feed and seed store and there were the cutest little colored chicks. I had the strong urge to get one for my kids. Chicks, rabbits, ducks, little goats, & ponies, I was ready to start a farm. Then I came to my senses, the costs of being a responsible pet owner. Buying food, housing, animal necessities made me say they are cute and walked along.

3 years ago, after the color was gone and the ducks were getting to big to keep a family member asked if we would take them. They do grow up, they do get messy, they do cost, and important they can infect with Salmonella bacteria. Think twice:)

I also learned some eggs are injected with coloring, to make the chicks different colors. If you would like to learn more visit the CDC Website @

Nope, I can say that I've never had the urge to buy poultry like animals ;) Unless of course I was Chandler and Joey...but I'm more of a Monica and Rachel!!
