Hot Chicks calendar a way to give back

Joy Love and her husband, Ken Barker, (left to right) have a backyard chicken coop that has not only made it through numerous bear attacks, but the Waldo Canyon Fire. Because firefighters saved their home and the chickens, the chickens are being featured in a fundraising calendar called Hot Chicks 2013. Laverne (foreground) is one of the chickens that was spared to continue producing eggs for the family. Wednesday, February 27, 2013. Photo by JERILEE BENNETT, THE GAZETTE
