I would think having lamb or beef would be the choice. And how did the Easter bunny laying chicken eggs? I know eggs are a symbol of birth and life, but what about the rabbit?

Thank you for your answer -but what about the Easter Bunny?
Isn't the Easter bunny symbolic for spring arriving and winter has passed? Hop, hop, hop in the meadows new green fields. I dun'no . . .
The rabbit is the favored animal of Oester, the pagan goddess that is honored by the "Easter" celebration. The eggs are for fertility, another springtime pagan festival. The resurection celebration was added to these pagan rites.

Easter is mentioned one time in the Bible - as a pagan holiday!
