We’re big believers that pets and animals have a remarkable impact on the wellbeing and happiness of our residents. One of the programs we’ve embraced for its therapeutic benefits is the Hatching Chicks Program. The program fosters empathy and care and brings a smile to our residents faces by giving them the opportunity to hatch and raise chicks and ducklings.

Residents in our Acacia and Grevillea house in our RFBI Hawkins Masonic Village recently became parents in the program, after receiving eggs earlier this month. We already have four little chicks that have hatched and become feathery friends to our ecstatic residents. They’ve named the chicks Oscar, Blondie, Fluffy and Lucky.

The hatching experience is a positive one in our villages, as it allows our residents to care for the little baby birds, inspires them to share their own stories from their backyards as kids, and puts a smile on their face during every interaction.
