Archive for the ‘Chicklets valentine’s Day’ Category

In the beginning…from the museum…all found in Lake County (a suburb of Chicago) 6 pictures

AND NOW…FROM…Resa…to the chicklets and their guests, on Valentine’s Day…

from the fabulous

The AGMs all pitched in to make this giant Valentine Piñata.

It’s stuffed with Resa’s famous pink popcorn, Holly’s corn breads cut into tiny heart shapes & Dale’s corn syrup cookies, also in tiny heart shapes.

AGMs Dale and Holly bring it to the Coop in person. We hope all love it!

Everyone at The Coop was thrilled, at the sight of the beautiful piñata.  Hitting things with sticks was more fun than anyone could have imagined.  The chicklets went first, then the larger animals nibbled at it.  The goats ate everything that fell to the ground, including the paper.

It was a wonderful gift and the models walked on stage to show off their beautiful gowns.  The Sewing Club was waiting for them, and asked if they could examine the stitching.  Of course, the models said yes.  Resa is going to show the chicklets how to add details to their work.

Resa does,however, worry about them swallowing straight pins, since they hold them in their beaks. They told her not to worry, it only happens once in awhile.  Resa said she’s going to figure out another way they can work with pins, that might be a little less dangerous.

The chicklets and their guests are finding the treats, along with the horses, goats and ducks.  The bunnies are nibbling on the paper scraps.  It was a wonderful gift.


Poetry Slam…Holly and the gang, and long distant poems from Melanie…

The chicklets asked Holly to come on stage with them during the Poetry Slam.  She accepted their invitation and read poems from Melanie, who was snowed in and couldn’t make the party.

by Melanie

I’m sending love to every soul who lives and plays at The Coop
They work and learn and laugh and share
And they sure know how to have fun

 One thing I admire most is that they all know the scoop
They are kind, generous and show they care
Cause they know Love is love for everyone

Feathers, scales, fur both short and long, whatever skin you’re in
Everyone is welcomed there as family or friendAnd if you are hurt or sick or on the mend they will Love you even more

by Melanie

Love is such a little word
With various interpretations
But when it is said it has huge implications|
That can create many warm sensations

On this Valentine’s Day to all around the world
I’m wishing you a love that has firm foundations
Fills your life with good vibrations
and lifts you up without any complications

And now, poems from the chicklets…

by chicklet Bliss

are soft
and feathery
they have cute feet
and beautiful beaks
there are a lot of birds
at The Coop
and a lot of love
as well


by chicklet, Min

It’s okay to not want to be around others
all the time
it’s okay to want to be alone sometimes
to read or color
as long as you do your committee things
and play with others
it’s okay to be a lone chicklet now and then
but it’s nice when others ask you to go somewhere with them
even if you’re right in the middle of a good part
in your book
you should try and go


By Brutus

this is a good place
for dogs to live
we get along with everyone
and we do a lot of the work
the chicklets and the others
sometimes can’t do
we also help in rescue efforts
and save those we can
from Factory Farms
we always have a lot to eat
we get pets
we get love
and beak rubs from the chicklets
I’m happy at The Coop
everything good is here

fashion is important to Chicklets
it’s fun
and I like it
because getting dressed up
makes me feel like
um…makes me feel like
I can do anything
but sometimes I just like being
a regular chicklet
either way is fine
but I enjoy our Fashion
Costume and Sewing Committee meetings
we have ice cream afterwards
and that’s something to look forward to


As always, the audience gave the poets a rousing cheer, filled with peeps, chirps and many wing flaps.  It was wonderful and everyone had a great time.


Terri and Haze finished their on stage jump roping routine, while Muffin sat in her buggy and watched. When they were finished, they brought the baby chicklet back to the Nursery, so they could join the chicklets for Valentine’s Day fun.


Chicklet Skip, is ready to wow the audience, during the early opening of the gala even on stage, with his leap to the pillow. He has been practicing for weeks, but now that the time has come, he’s a bit hesitant, since the leap, so to speak, seems a lot higher than it did in his nest room. It’s his first time on stage, and everyone is quite, giving him time to think, waiting for the big jump.

Once again the Dance Club reprised their routine, to support DIVERSITY for all life. There was an early morning program for the youngest chicklets. It was wonderful. When the acts were over, the chicklets went down for a nap. They loved the dancers and were seen trying to do some of the dance steps, on the way to their nests.

The Dance Club is very good, especially when it comes to working for Diversity.  They dye themselves different colors to represent everyone and everything, because they believe that our differences, when life affirming, make us stronger.


A pre-Valentine’s Day breakfast of corn waffles and pancakes, dripping with butter and syrup. Everyone had a delicious time.

The Library Committee has opened its bookstall…there’s a large selection, so there should be something for everyone.

The chicklets, and their guests, love to read.  The Library  Committee has opened their bookstall, so everyone can stop by and take a book to read before bedtime…or when they aren’t busy.  The Committee adds books throughout the day, so there’s always enough for those who care to stop by..


Last year, Resa made this beautiful painting for the Valentine’s Day party. This year, the chicklets are using it to welcome everyone to the Party Barn, on the big day. The chicklets love what Resa does for them and they can’t wait to see what she has brought for them this year.


The Valentine’s Day Treat Bar is getting stocked for the party goers. Dale has volunteered to make her special cookies this year.
