There’s no doubt that bunnies and chicks are very cute! And there are some bunnies that need to be adopted and rescued. We just ask that you read this before bringing home a bunny or chick for Easter!
- Rabbits are not “low-maintenance” pets, and are a poor choice as a pet for children.
- They have a lifespan of 10 years and require as much work as a dog or cat.
- Your home must be bunny-proofed, or Thumper will chew cords and furniture.
- Rabbits must be neutered or spayed or they will mark your house with feces and urine.
- They should live indoors, as members of the family.
Chicks and Ducks
- They become fully grown in 1 month (maybe 2).
- Chicks/Ducks do not make good starter pets for children, they are not easy to care for.
- Chicks/Ducks can peck and pinch aggressively.
- Chicks/Ducks are extremely messy eaters and poop a lot.
- Chicks/Ducks can develop health problems and cannot be treated by a standard “dog or cat” veterinarian.
- Exotic veterinary bills are prohibitively expensive.
