The first thing I did was separate the donut holes out into what bird I was going to make. Then before I melted the chocolate I got the accessories ready to go. I used M&M's for the pigs nose. For the beaks and combs on the head I used starburst or jolly rancher fruit chews. I softened them in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds. Then I formed them. The beaks I formed into a cone and snipped it with a pair of scissors to open the beak. I bought candy eyes to use.
Next I melted the chocolate and began decorating the cake pops. I did one color of bird at a time. For the pigs I melted green and yellow candy coating. I found out that once I dipped them I needed to let them set up slightly before adding the ears, nose, and eyes. I held the cake pops in the freezer for 30 seconds to set up after I attached the accessories. For the yellow birds I slivered off the sides to make it more triangular. For the yellow and red birds I added the white on the bellies after the rest of it had set up. I used black royal icing for the eye brows and black combs. I did not get real detailed with them but they still turned out pretty cute.
