We provide a resource CD with lots of resources for residents, including knitting, crocheting, stitching, recipes, puzzles, crafts and games (including “chick” bingo).
This programme is becoming increasingly popular with Retirement, and Care Homes.
While providing a common interest for all residents and stimulating social interaction, memories come flooding back of the ‘good old days’ when every family had chickens in their gardens.
Tales of collecting eggs, being chased by cockerels and trading for vegetables with their neighbours are exchanged.
(Some enterprising residents have even held a ‘sweep’ on the first to hatch.)

LOOK AT OUR TESTIMONIALS!
Mary (not real name) is a resident with advanced dementia who spends much of her time asleep or gazing into space. Speech is rarely heard. Our eggs arrived with many reservations from myself as to was this a suitable exercise for my residents.
Mary sat and gazed into the incubator for hours… and a new little chick was born. We looked at Mary and saw expressions, feelings and happiness. We asked her if she would like to name the chick… Her name is Lily, a beaming Mary spoke.
…the birth of Lily made every penny spent worthwhile.
…for care homes considering something different this may be the answer…
‘Thank you for sharing the wonderful experience of the Living Eggs Project. Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed having the chicks here over the Easter period. We’re thrilled to be able to keep some of them so that we can continue to watch them grow and take pleasure in looking after them and give them a long and happy life with us at Harriet Court.’
