Pinewood Easter chick joy
Fluffy chicks stole the show at a Budleigh Salterton nursing home when staff moved an incubator with 14 eggs into the day room and waited for them to hatch.
Residents at a Budleigh Salterton care home celebrated their Easter holiday with more than chocolate eggs when they successfully hatched 12 fluffy chicks.
The Pinewood Residential and Nursing Home, at Victoria Place, moved an incubator into the day room where residents eagerly awaited the new arrivals.
Out of 14 eggs, 12 chicks hatched over the course of two days.
All the chicks have now found new homes with staff from the care home.
