Cliveden was the first of the Signature homes to have Chicks this year! It was snowing outside and touch-and-go whether the eggs would arrive! Luckily, they did, and we were fortunate to have five hatches!
Residents watched in anticipation for the first three days, but none hatched. Nonetheless, residents did not give up hope and, after this, one a day hatched. Residents kept a close watch all day, helped with feeding time and, of course, mucking out. But most importantly, to love and hold the chicks and not forgetting to measure them to see how much they have grown.
Our chicks went to The Willows daily and were greeted with excitement wherever they went by residents, staff, families and visitors. Everyone just had to go and see them!
