Life Goes On
Despite all the bad weather, foxes and what have you, life goes on. Saphire gave birth to a pretty fawn female cria on Sunday whilst the stormy weather gave its all outside the barn. She has actually already been sold, so her new owner will get two for the price of one.
The single hen thinks she is an alpaca now and they do not take any notice of her. She is probably safe in there, but once the alpacas are out to pasture permanently again, she will not have their protection. Fingers crossed. Let's hope she makes friends with the new hens before then and goes back to roosting in the chicken house.
