Today I thought I would introduce you to some of my pets. I actually have a lot so I will introduce a few at a time. I have goats, chickens, budgies, quail, guinea pigs, rabbits and fish.
Above is a photo of me and my guinea pigs. I have five of them. There two boys and three girls. Their names are Athena, Helen and Pandora, they are the girls. Bubba Zeus and Big Zeus are the boys. I keep them in two seperate pens but sometimes we let them out into their yard together to play and eat grass. We think Athena might be pregnant coz her tummy is so big.
We feed them pellets that we buy and lots of vegetables, especially lettuce. Sometimes we give them treats like carrots, apples or even kiwi fruit.
I have three rabbits. They live in two seperate pens too. We put them in the yard on the grass with the guinea pigs too and they all get along really well, except Peta! She has to go in a seperate pen because she picks on the others. They eat the same things as the guinea pigs. The are so soft and fluffy I love to cuddle them, although Peta sometimes is a bit feisty.
I also have an avairy with budgies and quails.
There are 12 adult budgies and two quails, but soon to be more!
We started with 6 budgies and have had lots of babies since then.
So far we have had 8 babies that have turned into fully grown budgies.
Two of the girl budgies are in their nesting boxes at the moment -
HoneyLulu has three eggs and three babies in with her.
Blue Margarita has four eggs in her box.
My Mum took this photo this morning of HoneyLulu through the hole in the nesting box. It shows some of her babies have hatched. They don't have their feathers yet so we don't know what colour they will be.
Mars and Venus are our quails. Venus, the girl quail is also sitting on eggs. Below is a photo of her nest, she is sitting on seven eggs, so hopefully we will have more quails in our avairy as well.
I will share more about my animals later as I've got too many to talk about in one day!
Until next time,
