Our eggceptional chicks are here!
Our eggs hatched a few days ago and our chicks are growing fast. They are now large enough for our residents to hold and have all developed personalities.
The chick in the front of this pictures runs to the front whenever anyone comes close - he is definitely the bravest of all the chicks.
This project from Living Eggs has proven to be a great hit with residents, visitors and staff alike, providing a constant source of entertainment and discussion. Many of our residents have recalled the chickens and ducks that they grew up with and shared stories from a time when every house seemed to have their own poultry.
I think it is safe to say that we will be repeating this project again next spring!
