CANAVERAL GROVES, Fla. (AP) - One Canaveral Groves farm is allowing families to enjoy baby Easter chicks without committing to their long-term care.

For $25 Hise Farms will rent a pair of fluffy chicks along with 2 pounds of feed, a cardboard coop and the care instructions for two weeks.

After two weeks, renters must return the birds to the farm.

Farm owner Mary Hise says the chicks grow a lot in two weeks and the rental program is a fun and educational way for kids to experience nature.

Hise anticipates renting at least 100 pairs of baby chicks this Easter season.
