Here at Lostock we are very proud of our little farm.
We have 2 pygmy goats, Evie and Marvin. They are nearly 1 year old, very playful and love to climb! Evie was named after one of our pupils as her Dad helped us out a lot with our fencing!! We like to take them for walks and they love to have a snuggle with us.
We also have five chickens; Molly, Madeline, Georgia, Jane and Darren.
All of our chickens are female and we hatched some of them ourselves!! Madeline hatched Jane, Darren and Georgia and is ready to be a mummy again. Georgia was named after Prince George as she hatched on the day that that he was born!! Our very own royal chick!!
At the moment Molly, Madeline and Jane are broody so we have put some eggs under them and we are hoping they will hatch in about 20 days. Watch this space!!
Can you find out what broody means?
How long does it take for an egg to hatch?
