It’s been a busy week here at Old Macdonald’s Farm & Fun Park not only have we opened for a new season but we have welcomed some very cute new arrivals.
Our new flock of little lambs were born throughout the February half term and thankfully all are doing exceptionally well and all our sheep mums have taken to motherhood like a duck to water! It was perfect timing as not only could our keepers get close to our adorable lambs but so could our visitors with scheduled petting times throughout the day to introduce our new-born’s to life on the farm and to wean them into interacting with us and our visitors.
We can’t forget our baby Guinea pigs! It’s been somewhat of a baby boom in our “Rabbitry” this February as we have welcomed three lots of Guinea pig babies! Along with our two nearly born baby bunnies born in January and our cute little Guinea pig babies we have heard a lot of “Awwws!” And “Ooooos!” as visitors visited them in our “Rabbitry” throughout February half term and also were able to get up close to them in our classroom throughout the day and learn some fun facts!
