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.
