Chick these out! Hatch watch at Paternoster House
Paternoster House had some Easter eggs with a difference this year.
This Easter, the team and residents at Paternoster House in Cirencester were fortunate enough to watch ten adorable chicks hatch and welcomed them into the world as they hatched from their eggs.
It was a surprise to everyone when all the eggs hatched after just a few days at the Paternoster House, they felt very much at home!
During the egg-hatching process, some of our keen-eyed residents noted that the colouring on the chicks helped to define whether they would be male or female. The six male chicks were a yellow colour and the other four female chicks were more of a prominent orange colour.
The chicks have helped to provide further mental stimulation and conversation pieces with our residents and amongst the team.
Paternoster House have found a local farm who have agreed to take the chicks to live with them, Paternoster House are hoping they will be able to visit them again this summer.
Sharon, Activities Co-ordinator at Paternoster House, said: “We have all loved watching these chicks hatch, they are incredibly cute and our residents loved seeing the little fluffy chicks and a few of them were able to hold the chicks."
