Birds & Bunnies

You all know that we have sheep and cows on our farm, but there are lots of other animals that live on our farm. Some of them are good and some of them are not so good.

For lots and lots of days I have been watching a nest of eggs owned by a pair of plovers. We drive past them alot, the mum and dad are very protective of their eggs and make alot of noise when anything comes close. I have been waiting patiently for them to hatch....and today they hatched, 3 little chicks. They are tiny and cannot fly yet. I hope the mum and dad guard them safe tonight....a fox might be out there!

Isn't he tiny!

Foxes are bad animals, they eat baby lambs we do not like them one little bit. Rabbits are also bad, they eat lots of grass and make terrible holes in the ground. Sometimes there are too many rabbits and we need to get rid of a few. We feed the rabbits carrots, they love carrots. In a few days the carrots will not taste so good and the number of rabbits we have will be less. Sad really..... because they are just a little bit cute.
