Jenny and Black Beauty…Chickmas Eve

Jenny volunteered to ride a horse in the circus ring, for the show.  All of the horses told her she could ride one of them, but she politely declined, saying that she had a horse of her own.  She took the word horse literally and the Stage Crew spent hours looking for their saw “horse.”

Her act, during which she sat still and sang Winter Wonder Land, included her friends Robbie and Blue, who sang harmony.

Everyone was amazed that Jenny made the horse by herself.  She said it wasn’t that hard, since she took a class on woodworking and knew how to use crayons.

No one knew what crayons had to do with anything, but they said her act was wonderful. You will he happy to know that the Stage Crew built another horse for their shop, so she could keep the one she had.

She named him Black Beauty, after one of the books she she heard during Story Hour.

The Acrobats…Jack & Jill

This team has been together since last summer.  Jack is very strong and Jill is extremely agile.  Jack hold Jill while she sings The Coop’s favorite Chickmas carol.  Everyone joined in and it was truly wonderful.

The party has begun…Amanda and her unicycle are now on stage.

Amanda is riding her unicycle to JINGLE BELLS.  She’s doing spins and tricks and has the chickles on their feet, flapping their wings with joy.  Everyone is loving her routine.  She is thrilled and plans ons starting a unicycle club in January.

The chicklets have rolled out their first game for Chickmas Eve…How many chicklets can you fit into a car?

Instead of Jelly Beans, the chicklets decided to have everyone guess how many of them were able to fit into a car.  the winner gets a ride around The Coop and a coupon for a ride on the Gondola next summer.  The rides are free, but the winner won’t have to wait in line to go around the Rubber Duck Pond.

Twas the eve before Chickmas…a poem, which was read in the kitchen to the hens.

Twas
the
eve
before
chickmas
and
all
through
The
Coop
the
chicklets
were
peeping
and
looking
for
loot
they
ate
all
the
cookies
the
bread
and
the
corn
and
nothing
was
left
for
the
next
Chickmas
morn

 

the
hens
shook
their
feathers
and
went
right
to
work
chirping
and
peeping
they
turned
with
a
jerk
to
see
their
sweet
chicklets
all
fuzzy
and
bright
they
knew
they’d
be
cooking
well
into
the
night

 

tiny
wings
started
flapping
and
joy
filled
the
air
cuz
the
meaning
of
Chickmas
is
to
love
share
and
care

 

 

Post Scrip:  This poem was a collaborative effort by chicklets, Zack, Martha and Zoe, who, with the backing of the other chicklets, wanted to thank the hens for their hard work.

The chicklets raided the kitchen and ate most of the treats for the party and for Christmas morning.  The hens, knowing that would happen, hid quite a bit of the food they had prepared.  Still, they put on their aprons and got to work, and in no time at all, the pantry was filled to the brim. The chicklets were going to be kept out of the kitchen for the rest of the day, however, but the chicklets kind of expected that.

Merry Chickmas Eve to all!.

Chickmas… opening act at breakfast

During breakfast, the chicklets did an opening, IT’S CHICKMAS EVE, act, to get everyone in the mood for the night’s festivities.  It’s difficult feeding so many species, but the hens are used to it, so everything went well and the pancakes were gone in a jiffy.

Today will be filled with games, food and fun.  The Chickmas Eve party starts at Sundown!
