Chicks on their way to new homes

Snohomish Co-Op store manager Makenna Connors gently places two young chicks into a customer’s box at the Snohomish store on Friday, March 27. With people at home, many more people have begun raising chickens as a hobby; some places, such as the Co-Op, saw lines out the door on the first day of chick sales. Separately, the U.S. is seeing an egg shortage because more people are at home eating eggs. Want your own eggs? It won’t be quick: most chicken breeds take more than 17 weeks of growth before laying a first egg.

The Tribune reminds annually: Bunnies and chicks are not Easter gifts. The animals require long-term care and commitment.

Out while the sun lasted

With just the top of Whidbey Island visible over a low blanket of fog hovering over Port Gardner Bay on Friday, March 20, a photographer and several others went out to take in the sunny weather that we all enjoyed last week at Everett’s Grand Avenue Park. The photographer is shooting at a bust of Sen. Henry M. Jackson’s head installed a few years ago. While we enjoyed a week’s worth of spring-like weather last week, the rain has returned and is forecasted to stick through the first part of next week. Everett’s Mayor Cassie Franklin set a directive telling residents to stay home except for errands for health and safety, and for essential business, allows outdoor activity as long as you stay at least six feet away from other people under the principle of social distancing.
