Bring the Kids!

May 30th 2011

Children Visiting enjoyed feeding time with our ducks at Silversprings pond on the weekend. Our ducks are very friendly and even feed out of their hands. The children enjoyed a lovely time. When all the bread was gone the ducks started to chase the boys around the lake for more, even the chickens joined in! The boys had so much fun they didn't want to leave.

Our residents love children and families visiting, it brings a great buzz to our home. We have a children's play area with a cubby house and slide in the garden and a seating area by our front pond. If you are visiting soon with the kids, don't forget to bring some bread, our ducks will love you for it!
