We’re sitting in the hot tub one night when the conversation goes something like this.
Clare: “How long does it take the Easter Bunny to deliver all the eggs around the world?”
Me: “I don’t know what do you think?”
Clare: “Four days.”
Me: “How do you know that for sure and since when do bunnies lay eggs anyway?”
Clare: “I know because my friend Alex told me.”
Me: “But bunnies don’t lay eggs. It should be the Easter Chicken. Chickens lay eggs.”
Clare: “Yes, they can, the eggs come out of their butts.”
Me: “That’s not where eggs come from. Turtles lay eggs out of their butts. It might as well be the Easter Turtle.”
Clare: “That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard. It’s the Easter Bunny.”
Me: “I still think it should be the Easter Chicken. You never answered my question. How does he do it all in four days?”
Clare: “He has a jet.”
Me: “No, I don’t think that’s it. I bet he’s a chick. Chicks produce eggs and are really organized. Only a chick could get all that done in four days. I think we should start a petition.”
Clare: “Not everything has to be a competition, Mom.”
Me: “Not a competition, a petition to change it from the Easter Bunny to the Easter Chicken.”
Clare: “Awww, Mom!”
This week’s #HappyAct is to sign our petition to change the Easter Bunny to the Easter Chicken. Egg laying creatures of the world unite.

But there ARE already Easter chickens! Different breeds of Chickens that lay different colours of eggs: olive green, light green, light blue, dark copper, light red, and in some cases even pink or purple tinted! Personally, I have one Easter Hen – “Henrietta” lays a beautiful olive green egg.
Awesome! Time to dethrone the Easter bunny!
