Goddard House Chickens

Although scientific research has yet to confirm this, we see the observable positive effects our chickens have on our residents here at Goddard House Assisted Living. Having farm animals here at Goddard House seems to have therapeutic calming effects on our residents and provides an ongoing activity adjacent to our beautiful garden patio. Collecting fresh eggs each morning, feeding and caring for the chickens has all become part of the daily life here at Goddard House.  The chicken coop is situated along one of our walking paths and we’ve placed two park benches nearby so that residents can sit, observe and interact with the animals.
