Astell’s Easter chicks hatch

Our Astell House care home are very excited about their recent ‘Living Egg’ delivery. 🐣🐥
This is a real highlight this time every year for residents and staff!
The staff and residents have been waiting patiently for the wonderful experience of watching the chicks hatch. And today they did!
Thank you to the Living Eggs company who provide everything the home need to keep the chicks warm and safe over a 10 day hatching programme.
The company shared with us that the eggs are pathogen free from a DEFRA approved hatchery with the highest bio-security rating, to ensure health and welfare. And when the time comes to give the chicks a home, they’re placed on free range farms.
Here’s a picture of the eggs and the newly hatched chicks.
