Musical pens

A couple of days ago we moved Luna and her 4 (used to be 5 šŸ˜¦ ) peachicks out of the big pen. We had put them in there straight after they hatched 3.5 weeks ago to protect them from crows. 

  
Since the pen had been empty for a while (only bunny and Guinea pigs in there) we figured they’d be lots of bugs for them to catch. Plus we are giving them mealworms. 
However they are now bigger and we worried they needed a more varied diet, so out they went and we are locking them up at night. 

The chooks and ducks go moved back in the big pen and the spare roosters can now  have access to the edge pen.

Later that day the goats decided to also move themselves. We were keen to move them anyway but hadn’t yet. They just jumped the fence and took themselves for a field trip. They are now in their top paddock but only in the small area around their shed. We’ll open up the paddock soon.

Today I also swapped the llamas. The girls went to the street paddock with the view of giving them the hill paddock soon, and the boys went to the chook paddock. 

I should mention that the boys are only Enrique and Orlando as Valentibe was always so stressed we decided to sell him. We found him a lovely per home nearby where he is on his own. He went on trial but seems very happy there.
