It was an Easter promotion that didn't quite go off as planned.
Rocklands Farm in Poolesville was offering to rent young chicks to families over the Easter holiday.
But Friday, Montgomery County Animal Control stepped in, and said the farm could only rent chicks that were three weeks or older.
Some families who showed up today walked away disappointed, but understood the county's decision:
Erinn Foster says she decided against bringing home some older chicks, saying they weren't as cute.
She says instead of chicks, she'll now fill up her kids easter basket with some toys.
