Next week, take the kids to local egg hunts, but this weekend show them what hatches from those eggs by checking out the chicks at IFA stores along the Wasatch Front. And going from free to cheap, buy an $8 ticket to the family-friendly Sureluck Holmes and the Band of Assassins showing at Draper Historic Theatre.

Sureluck Holmes and the Band of Assassins

And if you're really in the mood for parody plays, check out current shows at the Off Broadway Theatre, which is also doing a Holmes parody, and Desert Start Theatre.

Picking up Chicks

The chicks are in at the Intermountain Farmers Association store. And even if you have no desire to every create your own coop, it's your chance to take the kids to see the cute, little birds. We're talking buff orpington, barred rock, white leghorn, Ameraucana and other types of little chickens that range from black to bright yellow.

And if you do want to start a coop, IFA is holding a baker's dozen sale on chicks—buy 12, get one free.
