Residents and chickens had a bit of fun this past Saturday celebrating the Easter holiday. A number of children and their families came out and had a lot of fun with a holiday Easter egg hunt throughout the property. There was also an opportunity for photos.

Colleen used her chicken harness and leash to share the festivities with one of our chickens. Despite the partly rainy weather, a good time ...
