After a busy week extending & improving their pen the pigs are here!!!! We have 8 – all had an Oxford Sandy & Black dad, one mum was Saddleback/Gloucester Old Spot & the other GOS/Berkshire. A lovely mix of heritage breeds & every set of markings seems to be represented!🐷🐖🐷🐖🐷🐖🐷🐖🙂 … See MoreSee Less
Sarah Lafarge These are the pigs I was talking about on Friday went we went to see the Albans Barnyard cows and lambs ….. I couldn't see the pigs because they hadn't arrived. ☺️ 😁
The Chickens are out! It’s not only us that have been in lockdown, chickens have been as well due to avian flu. Ours have staged a couple of Houdini like breakouts but they have been otherwise penned since December
This is our copper laced wyandotte, we think she is beautiful.
Happy Easter!!🐣🐔🐓 … See MoreSee Less
Really pretty hen
UPDATE: The cameras are now off😢
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to watch and for all the lovely messages you have sent – it’s been lovely to hear from you & we hope the lambs have brightened your days.
Lambcam will be back next year! 🐏🐏🐏 … See MoreSee Less
The lambcam was great fun! It also made me reminisce about the lovely holiday in Cox cottage. My family and I would certainly like to return some time…
We saw them gambolling around this afternoon – full of the joys of Spring! Made me feel quite old!
Love watching them in the field . And the cattle….and wild geese….and it would be lovely to see the trees greening up as well!
I was sad to think that I would have to wait until next year for the best ever entertainment and then you put one of the cameras outside! Yippeee🤣👍😀 thank you so much! Loads more time to enjoy the frolicking😀
Hope the last two are the same 🤞
Wilma has been holding on to her lambs so long now that she is joined in the ‘due’ queue by the other two ladies in waiting.
Next up is ‘Blackie’. She’s another first timer and is expecting our only single lamb. Then there is No 1 – our first ever homebred lamb – she’s an old lady at 10 and is expecting triplets! She is an excellent mother & a couple of years ago brought up a fine set of quads all on her own! If they time it right we would really like to be able to adopt one of her lambs onto Blackie🤞🐏🐏🐏 … See MoreSee Less
The lights are on, I can see your foot and now I don't want to go to bed.
This is Wilma & it’s her turn to lamb next! She should be due today but, based on the lambing so far this year, there’s unlikely to be any action before tomorrow. She’s expecting twins & this is her second lambing – last year she popped them out so quick we didn’t even notice the second one arrive – fingers crossed it’s that easy this year.🤞🐏🐏 … See MoreSee Less

How many more have you got to go? I’m sure you all need a rest! X
Lovely pictures, miss visiting this year.
So photogenic. Love their faces.
The next ewe due is 32. She’s expecting twins anytime now! … See MoreSee Less
I like having the picture of what ewe to watch next, thank you.
Clever girl – she didn’t run away this year! She popped out two lovely ram lambs this afternoon without any help at all🐏🐏 … See MoreSee Less
Was funny last year when she ran away, but glad she’s a pro this year. Girls are still winning 🤞x
Hmmm. You said the ram lambs might start turning up.. And here they are. ☺️
Looks like there’s a big storm coming through over the next couple of days so we thought we better make a shelter for the lambs – it’s amazing what you can do with a few old pallets!💨🌦🌧⛈☂️🐏🐏 … See MoreSee Less
Hope you've got it lashed down! Blowing a hoolie up here just now💨💦💨
Hope it's nothing like 1987 !! Keep safe .
Next due is 169. She is expecting twins anytime now. She was born in 2018 and this is her second lambing. Last year she ran away from her first lamb but she did turn round & love it after a minute or two! Let’s hope she’s a bit more prepared this year!🐏🐏 … See MoreSee Less
Expect she got the fright of her life 🤣😂
Awww bless her!
208 may have been a first timer but she did so well! Ewe twins born, up, feeding & penned within an hour! Not too late either – out at midnight back to bed at one. Lambing made easy🐏🐏👏👏 … See MoreSee Less
That is so good to hear! And a first time mum too
This is 208 & she should be next to lamb. She’s due twins today but, as all the ewes are at least a day late, she probably won’t lamb until tomorrow! This is her first lambing so it will be interesting to see how she does🐏🐏🤞 … See MoreSee Less
Good luck my lovely 😊
