This Spring TPIC went Quackers!
From Risby Hall and Risby Park:
They had a visit from the local paper to spread the news of their visitors:
Residents of Risby Park nursing home near Bury St Edmunds had a nice surprise when a group of local toddlers and childminders descended on the home for an Easter Activity Day.
Risby Park named their ducks:Digby, Dotty, Daisy, Dilly,Ditzy and Dandy
Risby Hall named their ducklings:Jemima, Donald, Daisy, Daffy, Crispy and Hoisin
From Prince Of Wales House:
One of our spring activities this year has been to hatch some ducklings.
The eggs arrived on a Tuesday morning and were kept them in their incubator in the activity area so that everyone could keep an eye on the progress.
The cage was set up nearby ready for the new chicks to go into. On the Thursday night the ducklings arrived and we had 5 new babies to look after. The residents have absolutely loved this experience.
From Sherrington House:
On the 21st of March our incredible eggs experience began! We were delivered 6 small duck eggs, an Incubator, a Brooder and Cage.
Over the next few days the residents were able to watch 6 beautiful ducklings hatch and watch them grow into balls of fluffiness. The residents really enjoyed looking after the ducklings and holding them and watching them learn how to swim.
The whole experience is one that everyone really enjoyed and we were really sad to see the ducklings go , however one of our residents family members did adopt two of the six duckling so we will look forward to hearing updates about how they are getting on.
