If we can't get to the farm...then they'll bring the farm to us!

Polish chickenKris McCue is a regular volunteer at McLean bringing her grandchildren to visit with residents and do special activities with them on a weekly basis. This has been a family tradition since Kris' own grandmother was at McLean. But on June 20th, the visit was truly memorable as Sage McCue and her siblings brought in a crate of her prized, Polish Crested Chickens. What a hit they were! Some residents had never patted a chicken before. Others like Billie, pictured left, grew up on farms, and the chickens brought back many memories for them to share.
