chicks one use

To Tonga, where the government has authorised the delivery of thousands of free chicks and ducklings to its people - thus creating a nation of Chandlers and Joeys.

Why? Well, it’s a novel way to fight obesity. The idea is to cut reliance on fatty imported chicken and turkey, which has been blamed for soaring levels of type 2 diabetes on the islands. Tongans have also been given discounts on fresh fish - and higher taxes on tobacco and fatty meats.

Maybe it’s best if citizens and chicks don’t become Friends, then.
