Foxholes nursing home in Hitchin welcomed some more residents last week – six newly hatched chicks.

The arrivals hatched in an incubator last Wednesday and have gone down a storm.

Activities coordinator Erica Holmes said: “They have gone down really well – some of them [the residents] have stayed up really late – we couldn’t get them to bed because they were watching the chicks.”

The chicks are soon due to move to a new home.
