Happy Easter, Chicklets!

Now that our chicks are enjoying their foster time, I wanted to wish them a happy Easter (if they and their foster families celebrate it, of course).  Newly hatched chicklets are symbolic of the holiday, as are their marshmallow counterparts.

Tasty and Fun to Eat

I wonder why a bunny became associated with Easter, instead of a chicken.  (Notice, once again, that I have temporarily shelved use of my ordinary monikers, hopping breakfast and winged dinner, out of respect for our chicks and Morgan the Library Bunny, who are my friends and colleagues.)  I get the egg association; so why not an Easter Chicken?  Just asking.  I'm sure there are good reasons why we have an Easter Bunny.

So, for those of my readers celebrating Easter, I hope you save me some of your great chow.  I am partial to turkey with gravy, mashed potatoes, and biscuits with honey.  Make sure the potatoes are freshly peeled; none of this instant boxed stuff.  Same with the gravy; if it comes out of a jar, let your relatives eat it.  Fresh ingredients for moi, if you please.

We have loads of cute photos of our chicklets posted on Broadway Gal's Hatching Chicks @ MPL blog. Take a peep --er-- peek.

P.S.  Since some of our chicks are yellow (the Peeps certainly are), our closer today is "Yellow," by Coldplay (from the Parachutes CD [2000]).
