Looking after chicks

Residents’ News:

In September, we took care of an incubator with 10 chicken eggs and kept this until they were all hatched.

We were very excited for the first to hatch, which he did, making a lot of noise. All 10 hatched and when they had their fluffy down we were able to handle them.

I loved it when they went to sleep in a lovely fluffy ball, all on top of each other. A friend of a member of staff took four of them so we get news of their progress. The remaining six were returned to the farm from whence we received them.
