When the Chicken Crossed the Courtyard
Back to Top
Yes! That was a chicken crossing the courtyard at Brightview South River!
Residents living in Wellspring Village at the community are now raising chickens – and have been since they were chicks.
“We love having the chickens,” begins Mary Smith, Wellspring Village Director at the community. “Residents enjoy holding and playing with them as well as talking to and petting them. And the chickens love it too. Henrietta is the first to fly out of the coop and into someone’s lap, ready for a pet and attention. What’s more, residents share stories of their childhood and growing up on farms. Family members have also enjoyed having the chickens and check on them whenever they visit.”
“They’ve been a great addition to our Wellspring Village family.”
