Crocheted hearts and ripples - hearts on one side and ripples on the other. Check the February 2009 issue of Crochet World for pattern. Pretty sure its a triple treble into the white 2 rows below on both sides of the chevron to make the heart shape.
original pinner says: "chickens! - I made such little chickens - it's easy: just knit a simple square, sew it in half, stuff it with cotton and stitch with red yarn the comb, tail and details." (these link back to etsy)
