It is traditional practice to buy cute chicks, ducklings and rabbits as gifts for children around Easter.As long as you remember that these cute little animals grow up and spend more Easter holidays, there is nothing wrong with the need to be careful with food, space and time.The simple solution is not to buy live animals at all, but to buy a great plush toy.Generally speaking, it is a bad idea to send a live pet as a gift.If it is for your own child, consider taking care of the needs of the animal and whether you are able and willing to provide it.If it is someone else's child, first ask the parents if they will welcome new members of the family.However, if you do have time, space, love and money to take care of a new family member and are willing to take responsibility for doing so, here are some notes that give you a start.Baby chicken and baby duck have similar needs.In the first few weeks, the nestling needed almost constant monitoring.So maybe a little bigger chick is a better choice.Caretakers who buy your birds should know their age.Chickens and ducklings need to keep warm.Depending on the climate of your location, it may take them weeks to stay outdoors.Chicks need to stay at 95 degrees for the first week of their life, followed by 90 degrees, etc, down 5 degrees a week until they are 4-Five weeks old, full of feathers.The source of heat is a red hot bulb and you will want to put a thermometer in their cage.Food chicks have special needs in terms of food, as do ducklings.No, they don't eat the same food.You will want to make sure that you can buy the right feed for your pet at the place where you buy your pet or at the local feed store.Local feed stores will provide suitable commercial feed for chicks and ducklings, but some feed is not in stock after Easter.You will want to ask if they are in stock and if not, buy enough food to feed your chicks or ducklings until they can be exchanged for adult feed.You will also want to buy a suitable chicken feeder.They throw the food into the bedding, dirty the food in an open bowl, and waste a lot when they peck the food.The water is not intended to stick any old bowl into the pen for the chicks or ducklings to eat.Baby bird needs clean water.The young birds also have a tendency to dirty the water by walking through the water, defecating in the water and throwing bedding into the water.You will want to buy a chicken water drinker from a feed or pet shop.It is built to keep the contamination to a minimum, but in the first four weeks or so, you have to check the water dispenser several times a day and provide fresh water and wash the water regularly if necessary.When the chicks are a few weeks old they may be big enough that you can put the plumber on a flat or brick in the pen and lift it from the floor height (the water should be with the chicks) this will reduce a bit of confusion.In the first few weeks, a carton with ventilation holes and at least 12 inch high sides can be used as a home for your chicks or ducklings.A circular container like a children's pool is better because the chicks and ducklings may vomit in the corner and suffocate the birds at the bottom.Plan to give them about 2 feet space for each young bird.It sounds a lot when they are two days old, but they will grow!You also need bedding.Shavings are the best, such as packaging for small animal bedding.Depending on the size of their pen, it is planned to be replaced every few days.When they are about 4 to 5 weeks old and full of feathers, they can be outdoors (if weather permits ).Then they need a chicken house of some sort and a pen to roam.Chickens and ducks are gregarious animals.You don't need to buy more than one, but in the long run they will be happier if you buy it.However, the chicks and ducklings do provide a very special reward for your gentleness and love.Last year's Easter chicks will spawn for this Easter celebration!Chickens and ducks have a life span of 10 to 15 years, and females will spawn between about 5 months and about 5 years.Some people lie longer, though not as much as they were when they were young.Of course, Easter chicks and ducklings are not divided by sex, which means you will have male cocks or cocks as well as females.In the case of the duck, this is a big problem.But we all know the cock, don't we?About the same time the hen starts laying eggs, the cock starts to scream.If you live in town, it could be a neighbor's problem, not to mention the family.Not everyone thinks we should get up at three o'clock A.M. but your cock will.In the past few years, dyes used to color chickens and ducklings often cause them to get sick and die a few days after the holidays.This is no longer true, as dyeing the chicks and ducklings in different ways.This is just a very basic outline of demand for chickens and ducklings.I highly recommend that you buy a book for them or at least go to the library to see it.If someone has just passed your house and sent a chick or duckling to your child for Easter (by chance), install them with a cardboard box
containing shaved flowers or newspapers, warm lights (pay attention to the danger of fire, make sure it is out of the range of chickens), a bowl with fresh water, go to the nearest feed or pet shop to buy a water dispenser, feed and feeder, a suitable hot bulb, thermometer, bedding and a book about careOf course, it is possible that you can keep the birds for a few months or weeks and then put them with people who want chickens or ducks and have the facilities to take care of them.It would be great if you wanted to do so, but I will make sure you make arrangements in advance.Depending on where you live, it may not be that easy to find someone who wants them.Aren't those Easter bunny babies the cutest?Sure they are!But they can grow into rabbits and live for more than ten years.They don't need as much intensive care as a baby as a bird, but in the long run their needs may be more expensive.They don't really lay eggs, you know.;Rabbits are really great pets.However, they are usually not good pets for children, especially young children.If you are ready and want to add a rabbit to your family, then it is certainly not wrong to decide to do it on Easter in time.If someone passes by and gives your child an Easter Rabbit (a live rabbit), you may have a bit of a problem!Yes, it happened.Fortunately, most pet stores now have everything you need for your new pet to be healthy and happy.The basic needs of rabbits are the same as those of all pets.For the rabbit, you first have to decide whether he or she lives indoors or outdoors.Rabbits are not as strong as their wild counterparts.Pet rabbits should really stay indoors, whether there is a house or not.Ancillary buildings such as sheds or garages are not ideal and ventilation and temperature must be considered, and whether other animals are able to enter the building.A rabbit can actually die from fear because of the presence of a predator, such as a family dog.A rabbit in a cage takes at least a few hours of game time per day in a larger area.You will still need to buy a cage or hu either indoors or outdoors.Even an indoor rabbit should have a cage for your own safety and the time you may need to limit them.The rabbit's cage should be at least five times that of the Rabbit.For a bunny, you either want to buy a cage based on its adult size or plan to buy a bigger cage as it grows.Your rabbits should be able to stretch and lie down, and their heads should not touch the top of the cage when they stand.Depending on the type of cage you purchased, you will also need bedding.Cages with wire floors are common, but they are also difficult on bunny feet.If you buy this cage, you should lay some cardboard on the wire to make your rabbit more comfortable.When you purchase a cage, please keep in mind the type of feeder and drinker you plan to use.The best feeders and water dispensers are installed in cages in a way that keeps them clean and hygienic.Therefore, it may be easiest to purchase cages, feeders and water delivery devices at the same time and place.Most pet and feed stores will provide you with all of these items.Your Rabbit will also love a place to hide or have a little bit of privacy.A simple carton with a door inside that can be placed in a cage or you can buy something more expensive if you want.Today, it is easy for rabbits to get commercial feed and snacks.However, these foods should be considered as a supplement to Hay (timothy hay or grass hay is better for rabbits than alfalfa) and dark green leafy vegetables.Like any pet, fresh food and water should be provided daily.If you keep the rabbits indoors and let them run the house, you can train them to use the bin.You will want to make sure there are rabbits in your house.A bite from a strange wire could have terrible consequences.Rabbits are gregarious animals.Even if you or your child spend a lot of time with the rabbit, they will be happier with another rabbit friend.Consider adopting two rabbits instead of one.They will be happier about it.Like chickens, you will find many books and resources on the internet about rabbit care.This is just a very basic outline.You still have a lot to learn!Although I mentioned that for chicks and ducklings, if you can arrange a new home for adult chickens or ducks, you might consider keeping them only until they grow up. Easter BunnyIf you are buying a rabbit, please plan to keep it for its own life.If someone just surprises you with a gift rabbit and you can't or don't want to keep it, you'll find many rabbit rescue groups listed online.Many local shelters also provide facilities for rabbits.Pets are not suitable to surprise anyone at any time.This is the case with Easter chicks, Easter ducklings and Easter rabbits.They are all cute babies, but they are growing and living from 10 to 15 years old.They are in need and need proper care.I hope you didn't buy one on the spur of the moment, but if you do, I hope you continue now and see if it will be properly taken care.If someone surprises you (or your child) with an Easter Bunny or chick, I hope you will either take responsibility (and maybe be surprised by their return!) Or take appropriate measures to find a good home for them.Most importantly, if you decided a few months ago to add some chickens, ducks or rabbits to your family and thought you would wait until Easter to buy them to take home and be there, their cages and hay, or heating lights and feed are all ready and waiting for them. Enjoy new members of your family!.
