Residents meeting the chicks.

Residents at King’s Lynn Residential have enjoyed meeting seven chicks recently hatched at the home.

Staff thought rearing the chicks would be a rewarding lockdown activity and said the new arrivals had sparked lots of happy memories.

Manager Jodi Collins said one resident, unable to spend time out of bed, had been delighted by a surprise visit from all seven chicks.

“We could not have imagined how this activity would stimulate the memories that our residents have,” she added.

“But it really has got them all sharing lovely stories from their pasts. 

“They have enjoyed hours of cuddles and have loved watching them play.”
