Introducing the Bucket Feeder


With 7 lambs now – Crispy and 17 added to the group – bottle feeding is becoming more of a challenge. Having invested in a bucket feeder which has 6 teats, now comes the task of introducing the lambs to it and getting them to accept colder milk. It seems to be working well but it’s important to monitor them feeding to make sure that all the lambs get their fair share. Crispy is the smallest and at the moment we are keeping him on the bottle so they’re all fed at the same time.
