Lambs Settling In

Orphan lambs HenSafe smallholding


Awake early! We are aiming for 5 feeds evenly spaced through the day so that will be 7am, 11am, 3pm, 7pm and 11pm.
The smallest lamb who we’ll call Brownie (he’s brown…) is scouring a bit. We’ve weakened his feed slightly and eased off on the quantity. He likes to sip his milk rather than gulp the whole lot down in one as some of the larger ones do. Takes a bit of time and we move him outside the pen for feeding or he gets mugged by the others for the bottle.
