The Vorpal Easter Bunny that spawns when opening an easter egg nest was not intended to be tameable and they have been updated to reflect that, and any existing tames removed. Subsequently, if you had tamed and stored one on a pet broker, the pet broker should now be updated as well. Sorry for the confusion! We'll try to be more careful about things like this in the future. grimacing
