A not-to-be-missed essential icon of French Easter is chicken little
Why ever did I leave my chicks back in New York?

Almost every window has hatching chicks present
Some are sitting in their nid/nest admittedly.

Just because it's the day after Easter doesn't mean the fancy eggs are 1/2 price or marked down. We have another week of vacance here. And anyway I've yet to see a chocolate egg go on sale. They must all be eaten up.
While checking out an apartment for a PB reader I was stopped in my tracks by this adorable hatching chick eggcup. I was taking pics for the renter but I'm sure the owner thought I was nuts shooting her egg cup. *Let me know if you'd like me to check out a possible future Paris rental for you.
The kitchen supply shops on rue Montmartre are full of relaxing chicks.
This one is vacationing in Tahiti.
By the way these little chicks are called 'Piou Pious'
It's the French sound they make of course.
Here's a hot song about Piou Pious on Youtube. With 40 million hits it's got to be hot no?
I'm very tempted by these bunny night lights but that's another Easter story.
La Tour d'Argent shop has beautiful Limoges eggs purely for decoration. Baker Eric Kayser has a box of a dozen mini Piou pious in dark and white chocolate. No one can top the French for Easter goofiness in my opinion but what do I know?
