Resa’s Egg Dance is something the chicklets and their guests look forward to seeing each year. And every year The Resa’s Egg Committee, makes a different Egg for her. It’s a wonderful experience. Magical, really. Everyone loved it. It was the perfect ending for the entertainment portion of a perfect day.
This is Resa, last year:
It’s a dance of rebirth and new beginnings. It takes about forty-five minutes.
After the wonder of the the ballet and Egg Dance, everyone will catch their breath before treats and time to discuss the events of the day. Then there will be another Story Time, and another pajama party.
The chicklets hope that you all had fun and a wonderful Easter Day.
The chicklets, along with Beth, Holly and Melanie, danced the Easter Bunny Ballet, in the main entertainment Barn, for an extremely enthusiastic audience. It’s the first time humans have been included in one of the dancing events.
It was a free form ballet, to music by Queen. The women not only danced with the chicklets, they picked them up and twirled and leaped with them in their arms. It was a beautiful thing to see.
The dance lasted for thirty-seven minutes.
The ballet received five curtain calls and much wing flapping, as well as peeps, chirps and MANY other sounds, made by all the others in the barn.
A smashing success. Thank you to all those who participated. Chirp.
Letters to the Bunny. Please note that due to the virus, and the human participants, the bunny read the letters in the field and wore a mask. Thank you for your attention.
Dear Easter Bunny:
Why are humans so mean to everyone? Love, Rainbow
Dear Rainbow: Humans are not as evolved as other animals. They have a long way to go before they are civilized and in control of their brains and actions. Love, Easter Bunny
Dear Easter Bunie
I want to be just lik yu wen I grw up. I am a chicklet but do u think tat wil mater? Love, Jenny
I’m sure being a chicklet won’t matter in the least. You see, being the Easter Bunny is all about having love for others in your heart. It’s about kindness and warming others. It’s about sharing and having fun and seeing all the wonderful things others can do. So it never matters what you are, it just matters what’s in your heart. Love, Easter Bunny
If I try really hard can I grow ears like yours? Love, Joe
I’m afraid that no matter how hard you try, you will not be able to grow bunny ears. But then bunnies can’t grow wings like yours either. You are perfect just the way you are. Love, Easter Bunny
It’s me again. If I jump, is it the same as hopping? Love, Joe
It’s a lot like hopping. So, yes. Love, Easter Bunny
Dear Easter Bunny:
Why don’t bunnies have feathers? Love, Lois
That’s a very good question. Bunnies and chicklets are different species. Their genes are in a different order and because of that, bunnies have fur and chicklets have feathers. Love, Easter Bunny
Dear Easter Bunny:
I thought it was something like that. Genetics is something I’m interested in and I’m going to draw a double helix for the Science Club. Thank you very much. Love, Lois
life changes all the time
the humans try to push the animals out
they take their habitats
their food and water
they think everything belongs to them
even our bodies and coats
they take and never give
they don’t have the chicklet spirit
in their hearts
that’s why they are so mean
they don’t know how to share
and see the beauty in everyone
animals never take too much
I wish we could fit all living things
inside The Coop
all living things
except the humans
then everyone would be happy
bunnies are our friends
they work in the hospital
and in the nursery
they are never too busy
to warm someone
or to help others
bunnies are soft
I’m so happy to have them
I’m so happy they live at
WE LOVE BUNNIES
Chicklets have power
the power of kindness
the power of love
the power of sharing
and seeing beauty in others
that’s no small thing
Chicklets love almost everyone
not factory farm workers
or mean people who hurt animals
but everyone else
Chicklets are eager to learn
and to teach
they care for each other
Chicklets save lives
they fight back
and rescue others from
Chicklets are political
and they are willing to
do what needs to be done
to help those in need
I am proud to be a Chicklet
I realize how fortunate I am
I promise to always be a good
Chicklet and fight
for what’s right
by the Flying Chicklet
Our wings might not
get us off the ground
but if flight is all you dream about
you can find a way to do it
never give up on your dreams
unless it makes you unhappy
then get a new dream
because it’s silly
to waste your entire life
but if you want to fly
you can do it
even if you can only fly
in a straight line
it’s still flying
Part of the Welcoming Committee is here to invite you in to the entertainment barn for the amazing Ballet and Egg Dance. It’s going to be wonderful, so please, enjoy yourselves.
First up is the Poetry Slam. After which, there will be a tribute to the Warming Bunnies, who work tirelessly to heal and bring happiness and joy, to those around them. It will be awhile before the headline dance routines take place, but have fun at the opening acts.
I am a living bunny. I am not made for coats or the inside of gloves. I am not food. I am a living being with a heart and mind. I do not belong to you. I am sweet and kind. I do not harm anyone.
Ned is someone who stops by The Coop now and then. He’s into handmade socks and loves them very much. The Knitting Committee gifts him with several pairs, every time he drops in. He’s always thrilled. He’s at The Coop for Easter, wearing a brand new pair of socks from the chicklets, who absolutely adore him. He also has an excellent relationship with the horses.
After a hearty breakfast of Holly’s corn bread and treats, a poetry reading, a sing-along and a small fashion show, the chicklets and those who live at The Coop, as well as their guests, are having a rest period before dinner.
It has been a full day and the weather was nice enough for several trips around The Rubber Duck Pond in the Gondola. Which means that spring is definitely in the air.
Tomorrow Resa will delight everyone with her yearly Egg Dance and the ballet, with Holly, Beth and Melanie is something everyone is also looking forward to.
Tonight will be filled with a variety show, Story Time (Beth), a coloring contest and a pajama party, which will be held in the horse barn.
As for the adults. There’s will be meetings outlining the next Factory Farm raids and updates form the other Coops. The Roosters are making corn waffles for the hens, since they know more about saving others, than anyone else. The horses, goats, dogs and other large animals will also be in on the meetings, since their strength and speed are what make the raids so successful.
