You know if it’s spring... when cute little chicks hatch out—that’s what happened at the Hawthorn Green care home in London’s East End after it took delivery of 10 chick eggs.
They all hatched, to the delight of the residents at the home in Redman’s Road, Stepney Green, who have been monitoring them in the incubator.
It sparked special memories for 79-year-old Elizabeth Whittaker.
“I used to keep chickens once,” she recalls. “We had a big garden and I would feed them—I love them!
“Seeing these chicks hatch has brought back memories.”
The residents now enjoy cuddling the chicks which care home manager Cathy McAweaney says has been “magical” for them.
