Chicks hatch just in time for Easter

Our residents have been delighted to see the actual hatching process of eggs at close quarters which happened just in time for Easter. We took delivery of embryo eggs supplied by ‘Living Eggs’  in an incubator with an electronic thermostat and a large viewing window to allow all stages of the hatching to be observed.
A brooder box was also supplied with heat, light, bedding, feed and a waterer so that the further development of the chicks can be seen as well as being handled by both staff and residents.
