March 19 in history

March 19, 1957 - Dyed chicks cannot legally be sold here: Dyed live baby chicks, ducklings and rabbits, which commonly make their appearance in stores before Easter, cannot be sold legally in Green Bay this Easter. The city council last June passed an ordinance which provides that "It shall be unlawful to display, sell or give away any living poultry or animal to which coloring has been applied." The ordinance had been pushed by humane society authorities who also obtained its passage in a number of other state cities.

Unlike a toy, a live animal cannot be put out of sight until wanted again; it must be fed, watered, and cleaned up after, the society points out. The young child has not developed this responsibility, as a result it falls to an adult member of the household whose interest at most is vicarious. Under such conditions the baby chick usually dies from internal injuries due to handling.
