The party was a huge success. The Poetry reading took two and a half hours, although admittedly, a lot of time was spent eating and singing. Still it was wonderful. Several of the chicklets enjoyed playing in the boxes more than with the gifts and three or four of them slept wrapped up in the tissue paper. The food was delicious and there were no left-overs. Breakfast consisted of corn cakes with syrup and bales of hay for the horses, goats and cows. The pigs ate so much they slept until lunch. The birds received seed trees and outdoor feeding stations from St. Chicklaus and the bats and butterflies have new houses. The cats received warm blankets and so did the bunnies. The Chicklets drew pictures and knitted scarfs and hats for the roosters who guard The Coop. The library was restocked with so many new and wonderful books, that the chicklets will have enough to read until next year. The Sing-A-Long was so much fun, the canaries were fantastic, as usual, and Jingle Bells was voted the best Chickmas song for the tenth year in a row. Four new Rubber Ducks will be put not the Rubber Duck Pond and the Gondola has new cushions for everyone to enjoy. It was a lovely Chickmas.
The Chicklets are having small NewYear’s Party but they are gearing up for Valentine’s Day because they think love is the most important thing in the world. The team raided a Factory Farm last night and the hospital is full, so there’s a lot to be done. TheWarming Bunnies are on the job and some of the chicklets are reading stories to the wounded and sick. The rescue dogs were giving awards, on Chickmas Day, for their bravery and dedication. The hens made them cookies and bones and new rescue jackets that have more pockets for the injured and young. So Valentine’s Day is a special day at The Coop because even though the chicklets are small, their hearts are big and filled with love and joy.
