Rigby the Raccoon
As the weather improves Rigby our Raccoon is getting more active, and will continue to do so when the clocks change at the end of March, and the weather warms up. In order to support his improved activity we will be developing the enrichment in his enclosure with new activities for him to interact with.
All our Nubian Nanny goats are blooming, as they are preparing themselves for kidding, which should begin at the end of March. We are hoping for lots of twins.
These adorable little creatures joined us a week ago. They are settling in well, you can find them in our Butterfly House. To learn more about them watch our latest video below!
Dorset Ewes - more lambs to come
Not all our Dorset ewes have lambed yet, so look out for news when you visit.
Its mating season
for Dorset Sheep, Rabbits and Guinea Pigs
Spring is in the air and mating has started. Edward our Dorset Ram has gone in with his girls, he is wearing raddle so we will know which ewes he has tupped (mated with).
Bo our giant buck rabbit is spending time with Blossom our giant female rabbit, the gestation period is 28-32 days, so kittens should be born at the end of March/beginning of April
Our 2 male Guinea pigs, Sid and Scruffy are spending time with our females, Millie, Mable and Martha. If all goes well, pups will be born at the end of April onwards.
This month the farm park has seen the arrival of lots of new animals!
- We have had a number of Dorset lambs born, with
more on the way. So far all our ewes have given birth to twins, and all lambs
are doing well.
- Baby Hissing Cockroaches have been spotted,
you will find these in our reptile room.
- Branston our new Nubian male goat has come to stay, he is in with our female goats, so hopefully we will have kids born next April.
