Baby Chicks Easter Holidays Medieval Legend Contemporary Abuse
by Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
The text of my book details the struggle of young chicks when they are sold by uncaring pet shops and farmers to the parents of children, who present the dyed birds to their children at Easter. I have described the festiveness of Easter from the time of a pagan goddess Aostra, the Persians, and early Christians. Legislation to fight the sale of dyed baby chicks was begun by the mid 20th century.
