The chicken and the box of paints:
A pun?
Play on words?
A literal chicken and box of paints?

Does the age of the chicken matter?
The type of paints?

Would he intend for the pet to do something with the chicken and box of paints?

Does the pet live in the house?
Is it an animal that he welcomes living in his house?
Or is pet being used ironically?

Is it an exotic animal?

And since I'm not sure how you interpreted rodent, the pet ISN'T:
A mouse?
A hamster?
A rat?
A guinea pig?
A weseal?
A ferret?
A mink?
A chinchilla?

Is the chicken alive?

Man, Bodo and the brevity. Nicely done.

Has the bunny done something?
Destroyed something?
And the same effect could be achieved with a chicken and a box of paints?

Is a second set or color of paint involved?

Here comes Peter Cottontail....hoppin' down, the bunny-trail...

The reason he should give his bunny a chicken and a box of paints...its name? Its breed? Some other physical characteristic? Its behavior? So it can play the Easter Bunny?

when you said "it is male" were you referring to the bunny or the chicken? because I was thinking that maybe the bunny needed the chicken for eggs, and then he could use the paints to color them for hiding.

Is it a particularly large bunny?YES!

*******SPOILER!!!*******
I read Ripleys Believe It Or Not, and there was a picture of a boy holding a rabbit 3/4 his size! And its still growing!! So, to be the Easter Bunny, he'll need a chicken for eggs and paints to color them

You mean the Easter Bunny doesn't lay Easter Eggs himself? He's a mythical giant rabbit - why not?

Nice puzzle!!
