CHICKENS have been donated to a Burton school which caters for pupils with special needs.
Garden supply firm Garden4Less, based in Burton, donated a coop to the Fountains High School, in Bitham Lane, Stretton, in July.
Now, the pupils welcomed their new feathered friends which will provide eggs for the school’s kitchen.
The children will look after the chickens themselves.
When the coop was donated in the summer, Shane Bayliss of the garden supply firm said: “We’re really looking forward to hearing how looking after the chickens affects the children’s progress and development.
“We’re confident that getting the children involved in looking after the hens will have a positive effect.”
