Egg Collection

At 6pm at weekends and usually everyday in the school holidays (depending on the weather and my non-campsite work schedule) I do egg collection with anyone who wants to help.

We feed the chickens and alpacas. And sometimes we feed apples to the pigs. We often practice our chicken holding skills as well.

Feeding alpacas is a tricky business, but we were successful on Saturday

Depending on the time of year we might also look at the turkeys and lambs or hold chicks.

Oh yes, we also collect the eggs…..

  1. Luke and I love the egg collecting and meeting the chickens at breakfast. We can’t wait to see you later in the summer.

  2. It’s funny how I can hear you shouting the words “egg collection” even when you write 🙂
