Do you buy your kid an Easter pet?

I seen recent advertisments for "Easter bunnies". I have friends that have bought a bunny or a chick for thier child at Easter. I was thinking of getting a couple of chicks but we want them for eggs anyways. So it's dual purpuse thing.

  • We only purchase the non-breathing and usually edible kind

  • Oh HELL NO!! I do see Tractor supply selling baby chicks and ducks and the "mexicans" are buying em up like there's NO tomorrow. Never mind that you CANT keep "livestock" in a residential neighborhood, they just ignore the laws of America!

  • My mom bought the colored chicks for us one year. The majority turned out to be male. We didn't eat them, and they didn't make eggs so we kept them as pets til they died of natural causes. One got really big!

  • People buy cute little bunnies and chicks for Easter, the kid gets bored with the animal within a week, it becomes neglected and dies.
    I wish people would just stick to chocolate bunnies and chicks.

  • You may only see"MEXICANS" buying but it's probably cuz the whitey they work for has sent them to get the chicks. My comment is directed to "vbruno" ONLY. I have a bunch of stereotypical things to say about every race so tell me yours so I can say dumb sh*t about your ppl. Holla!
