Save the chickens!

I went out this afternoon to buy some construction paper so that we can make Magic English Hats in class (basically a big white paper hat covered in words and phrases, then infused with English Powers by rubbing them between our textbooks). Right out in front of the school was a woman selling little baby chicks, all peeping away in a box. Kids like cute things, so it was little surprise to kids walking away with them, but a baby chick is the kind of pet that could only make sense with a kid's logic. Are you going to raise it into a chicken? Or is it more likely that you're going to seal it in a plastic bag until it asphyxiates, as I saw one lad doing?
