CHICKENS 7 Feathered friends have joined us at the Mount. Some have already been adopted and named by individuals. MT and GC joined in with staff to help build a run for them and enjoyed the experience. Going forward we hope that all our residents will benefit from the caring and enjoyment aspect of keeping chickens. There have been considerations for a small pond to accommodate the ducks that annually nest and roam around the Mount through Summer too.
Combined with up coming garden projects- Green house, raised beds and home grown vegetables, the Mount is truly making the most of it’s enviable rural setting. By adding these hands on activities residents can become very much involved with the day to day running and reap the benefits of an eco friendly setting.
