New arrivals at the farm
These chicks and ducklings hatched last week. They have been living together in their brooder boxes and keeping warm under the heater. They are all different breeds and will start to look very different as the weeks go on.
Two goat kids were born on 3 March. The boy has a brown face and the girl has a black face. The goat kids stayed in the barn until they were one week old. When they were newborn, they slept under a big red light to help keep them warm. They are now a month old and go out in the field every day. They are enjoying jumping around.
Some of the Soay lambs born this week. The Soays are the sheep that lots of people think are goats because they have horns: the lambs will start to grow their horns as they get older.
Stepney City Farm faces a sudden loss to income of up to £27,000 due to the Covid-19 lock down.

If you are lucky enough to have a balcony, window box or a small garden maybe you could make a bird feeder.
You will Need
1. Cut a hole in the side large enough to allow a free flow of seeds, but in such a way that it won’t all fall out on the ground in the slightest puff of wind, and won’t get wet if it rains.
2. Make a few small holes in the bottom of your feeder to allow any rainwater to drain away.
3. Hang it with wire, or even strong string from a tree or your washing line.
4. If your feeder starts to wear out or the food in it goes mouldy, recycle it and make another one! Remember to keep your feeders well stocked.
