Chickens have brightened up the lives of older people at a care home in Huntingdon.
Ringshill Care Home, in Sallowbush Road, has welcomed some new four legged residents to its coop.
Home manager Katie Wilkinson said: “We spoke to residents about re-homing the hens and we all thought it would be a good idea to make Ringshill their forever home.”
The four hens were previously housed in a battery farm but it is hoped that with some care from staff and residents they will be plucky creatures once again.
Mrs Wilkinson added: “They were a little worse for wear when we received them as they used to peck at each other because there was so little room. Hopefully they’ll enjoy having a new environment to live in with plenty of space.”
