I can actually answer this one. No.

 

And my chickens already lay blue and green eggs, so ... meh.

 

Ooh, Araucana?

 

(One of the organic farms near here sells mixed color shell eggs, mostly white and brown, but for a while they had a small but noticeable percentage of pale turquoise green, I would call it.)

Not bad, but I think I'd have given them a Passover. 

I am indifferent, though I have an academic sense that it's beneficial.   What I really want is to have shakers FOR my paint bottles. As in, some sort of goblins in a cage that will continua

it would not be a normal paint.   Glitter Medium!   Turning any colour into a glitter variant.

Yup. Not show-quality, but my girls lay some of the prettiest eggs. I get brown speckled eggs from the Marans.

Question, April 2: Would either of these have been good prank Questions for yesterday: “Do you agree with the Pope’s Decision to cancel Easter?” “Was the Easter Bunny justified in Excommunicating the Pope for banning April Fools Day?”

 

I would have gone with the latter, given the Pope's smiling nature, I can see him loving a good joke.  The irony would be wonderful.

Question for, April 3: Did you see any bizarrely colorized Easter Bunnies or other strange Easter holiday decor this year?

 

Yes.  Peep stuffed animals that were as tall as my daughter.  I was horrified.

 I'd completely forgotten it was Easter until I tried to go do some shopping late Sunday afternoon and the entire world was closed.

 

 

What, exactly, has prompted the observance of Easter in the last few years?  It went from a holiday that was largely ignored by the secular world to one that shuts things down inconveniently like they're Chick Fil-A and crowds the roadways for sunrise services when you're trying to get home in the wee hours.  This was the one holiday I was super-excited to be done with when I stopped being Catholic 20-odd years ago, and here it is bothering me again. :lol:

This may have been the reason for both questions:

Currently no, just big ol' Kinder Surprise eggs.

I saw Bunnies created in the various pastel colors normally reserved to plastic Easter eggs. I don’t know if they were chocolate treats or plastic decor things. And I saw Rabbits covered in faux fur that would  normally adorn felines. Like ocelots, or maybe it was supposed to be Cheetah.

Bizarrely, no.  Even the lady in the shopping mall giving out Easter candy was dressed in the mall uniform instead of dressing up like an Easter Bunny.

Nope, in fact saw almost no Easter decorations at all.

Question, April 4: Did you get fooled by the Easter Bunny or any other pranksters this year?

 

Nope, wasn't fooled but man some companies had some absolutely epic April Fool's products.  Sadly I can't quite comment on some of them due to their more adult nature, but one company did a brick and fidget spinner this year as their April Fool's...

Nope. I can't recall seeing or making any colored Easter Eggs in a very long time.

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.

      1. Every day a question will be posted (but see rule 7). 
      1.5. Should I fail to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy & former Quisitors, will probably step in and post one (but see rule 3.5).
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer the question of the day before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted as early as 1 Minute after Midnite or as late as Noon CDT (Central Daylight Time, U.S. )

      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question feels like TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
