And not for dinner!

Anyone know where I can get a baby chick for tomorrow morning???

It's urgent, it's adorable, and I have no intention of doing cruel and unusual things to it.

The thing is, I am one of the moms in charge of O's preschool Easter party and, in true teacher fashion, I had a last minute brainstorm that had to do with making little baby chicks as our craft, followed by reading the book Little Chick, and then, for the pièce de résistance, having a show-and-tell of sorts with a baby chick.

Cute, right???

Only, where do I find a baby chick in less than 24 hours in New Jersey?

I tried...but no one is sure where you can find one in this time frame.
Can you drive by the farms near you?? Good luck!

OMG! Salmonella! Bird poop, Bird flu, pecked hands and other body parts, what if it turns out to be a rooster, and you thought the kids got up early! The poor chick is going to be exploited! Have you checked with PETA about chicks rights?

Just have your very good sport of a hubby dress up...
