CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - For Easter, many people give gifts like chocolate bunnies or baskets full of plastic eggs.
A gift that should not be given is a live animal but sometimes fluffy chicks and ducklings become popular Easter gifts.
While they are cute and fluffy livestock experts said they're not meant to be for pets and it is a responsibility to take care of them.
They have to stay warm when you first get them, they need proper shading and most important the feed and the water always have to be clean.
Kiii reporter Heather Gustafson gives us a look at why these birds should never be given as a holiday gift.
