Baby Chicks Are A Popular Easter Gift

Easter Sunday is right around the corner.  Easter baskets and chocolate bunnies are flying off store shelves in East Texas.  So are baby chicks.

Easter chicks tend to be a very popular gift.  They're cute and cuddly critters, but before you buy one as a gift, remember, they don't stay that way.

When chicks grow up, they're a big responsibilty just like any other pet.

Michael Beaty, manager of Wood's Supply and Feed, said, "Make sure they [have] a clean place to stay.  Once they get a couple months old, then you can put them out in cages.  Little ones have to stay indoors right now because it gets kind of cold on them."

Another thing that makes chicks so popular is the cost.  They're only about a dollar each.
