Precious cargo at Menno Haven

May 03, 2009

The residents at Menno Haven Village Nursing Center in Chambersburg, Pa., enjoyed a spring treat when staff arranged for 21 eggs to be hatched in the nursing center recently.

After an anxious week of turning the eggs under a heat lamp and keeping careful vigil, the residents were able to see 19 baby chicks emerge. Residents of all levels of care were able to hold and cuddle the little visitors.

The chicks have since been returned to the Franklin County 4-H Extension office.
