The Chicks were the stars of the month! Wow what excitement, as everybody watched and waited for the eggs to hatch. Out came beautiful fluffy chicks on May 20th much to the delight of adults and children! Sadly they had to go back to Nore Valley Park Farm. We will all miss their happy  chirping, especially the ladies in the office! Thank you very much for the loan of the chicks, but the time came for them to go back to the farm on May 29th.
