New arrivals at farm

Two newborn guinea pigs and four baby chicks are making themselves at home in the farm barn.

dzg_guinea_pigsThe guinea pigs were born to mum, Alice, after keepers introduced her to long-haired male Muffin, back in February.

The babies are both sporting similar colourings to mum and dad and are a mixture of ginger, white and brown.

Student keeper, Harley Hunt – pictured right – said: “They are both very cute and their hair is already starting to tuft out like Muffin.

“We think we have a boy and a girl, but we won’t be able to confirm for definite until they are a little bit older, so we’ll have plenty of time to think of names.”
