Baby, baby, do we have babies!
Just some of the new born farm animals you'll see this spring...
Interesting animal fact: Did you know that as this little lamb grows she will begin turning light like her mother?
Interesting animal fact: The mother rabbit pulls out hair as part of nest-building. Her kits (or kittens) are born nearly naked with little to no hair. The Doe's hair keeps them warm while their own hair grows. The bunnies had just been born so I didn't want to disturb them.Interesting animal fact: Almost everyone knows a male cat is called a Tom. (As in "tomcat"). But did you know that the female is called a Queen? Appropriate, don't you think?!?
Interesting animal fact: Geese are the largest waterfowls but spend most of their time on land. Because geese are so noisy some farmers use them as watch-dogs. They'll definitely let you know when someone is approaching!
You'll see these and many more baby animals when you visit this spring. Plus learn more interesting animals facts. Remember...learning can be fun!
