This week on the farm it has been really busy. We now have four goat kids, two of which are having to be bottle fed, and seven lambs, one of which also has to be bottle fed. Our four goat kids are called Blossom, Basil, Edelweiss and Oopsie-Daisy. Although most of the babies have special milk formula Oopsie-Daisy needs to have fresh goats milk. This has meant we have had to learn a new skill – milking goats!
We also have seven chicks which hatched in our incubator, and this week these have been looked after by the students in our Foundation department.
We also had to give one of our chickens a bath this week as she was a little bit messy – she really enjoyed her warm bath in the animal room sink and we have started moving animals out on to the Animal Walk for when it reopens on Friday 30th March!
