The history of calendars has been populated by many a "hot chick," most of them scantily clad and gleaming with oil.

But get your mind out of the truck stop for a second, because the "Hot Chicks of Waldo Canyon Calendar" isn't likely to be hidden under anyone's mattress anytime soon.

The subject of this calendar is real chicks — as in chickens. And though they felt the heat from the Waldo Canyon Fire, they are quite comfortable these days (and grateful not to be coated in oil) thanks to the heroic actions of some friendly out-of-state firefighters.

Joy Love tells the story of how firefighters kept her family's chickens safe during Colorado Springs' darkest hour here.

Love has gone on to create a calendar featuring the lucky birds. A portion of the proceeds from the sales will go the charity.

Calendar features — and benefits — local heroes

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (February 25, 2013) - Chickens that were rescued during the Waldo Canyon Fire have emerged as local celebrities yet again, this time as models in a 2013 calendar.


Waldo Canyon’s “Hot Chicks” were rescued by local and national firefighters, who kept the chickens alive while battling the blaze in Mountain Shadows.


“These courageous firefighters saved our home — and then they went beyond their call of duty. They took the time to feed and water our chickens for days as the firefighting continued,” explains Joy Love, owner of the “Hot Chicks” and founder of From the Ashes Media. “When we returned to our home, we were overwhelmed by the incredible first responders, military and volunteers who showed humanity by taking care of a few lowly chickens.”


The 2013 calendar features photographs of the “Hot Chicks” with first responders and other heroes of the Waldo Canyon Fire, including Colorado Springs Utilities, The Red Cross and the Mining Exchange Hotel.


A portion of proceeds will be used to support victims of the Waldo Canyon Fire, as well as organizations that responded with support during Colorado Springs’ worst natural disaster.
