The Wedding Party

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe bride and groom, Mimmi and Bobby, the cat, Munch Cake, flower girl, Buttercup, Adeline, the pig, Matthew, the baker and Flower, the newest chicklet at The Coop.

The bride decided to forego weeding garb and just be comfortable on a very warm day. Everyone one was delighted with that choice but Buttercup chose to wear her new skirt anyway. Sparrow was up early and painted hearts on Bobby and Mimmi for this very special occasion.  The bride wore her great-grandmother’s pearls and those who wished to do so, wore flowers in their feathers.

Flower was asked to be part of the wedding party because she represented hope for chickens everywhere.  Hope that they will one day be free from torture and death at the hands of humans.  Flower represents freedom and beauty for chickens everywhere and she is a shining example of perfection.  She is also adorable and was very happy to participate.  Not knowing what was expected of her, she sat very still until the vows where exchanged.  After the ceremony Mimmi rubbed beaks with her and told her that she was truly a beautiful chicklet.  She gave her a locket, in the shape of a heart, and showed her how to open it.  Inside was a kernel of corn to remind her that all those who lived at The Coop would never go hungry.  She said that the kernel was a reminder that all who came to The Coop would be welcomed, fed, accepted and loved and that what was the Wedding was all about.  Flower nestled agains Mimmi and sighed.  Mimmi put her wing over the chicklet and told her she loved her and to never forget that.  Then one of the older chicklets set off a cherry bomb and the festivities began in earnest.

    • Thank you. I’m so glad you like it. When I was a kid, a lot of nights ended with someone blowing something up with a cherry bomb or firecrackers. Seemed appropriate:)
