Scott Weese has a little bit to say about the impulse purchasing of chicks and baby bunnies at Easter, one of America's more deplorable holiday traditions, over at Worms & Germs. We occasionally see rabbits that started out as Easter bunnies, but I suppose that if they are being taken to the vet for any care at all that's a sign that they might have a decent home in spite of the odds.
I'd be happier if this silly trend died. Rabbits can be great pets, but it requires a serious commitment and lots of homework before you dive in. And chickens as pets? Well, not so much.
