New Chickens arrive at Nazareth Lodge
Nazareth Lodge has always been known for its pets and now we welcome more chickens to our home.
The new coop and chickens are part of a plan to raise our own chicks, it is hoped that this pair will in time breed and produce eggs which can be placed in our new incubator and increase the home's population with new chicks.
As with all our pets, care is provided jointly by staff and residents. We believe that in a rural community such as ours, having these animals and our gardens helps our residents feel more at home and helps them engage in the daily routines within the home. We have found that having pets in the home helps combat loneliness, boosts activity levels, and reduces stress and alleviate depression.
We will be keeping an eye on our new residents and hope to report good news in the coming weeks.
