New lambs at Daisy Chain

April 2013

This spring at Daisy Chain three of our sheep have had lambs. There are two sets of twins and one single lamb. When they are born they look yellow until their mother gives them a good wash to make them all fluffy and white!

It is feeling very chilly on down at Daisy Chain. While we are wrapping up warm inside, our ducks are more than happy with the climate! They have taken up the sport of icestaking... and by the looks of it we could have some Olympic Champions on our hands!!

As we all get back into the familiar pattern of September - heading back to school and work our animals at Daisy Chain are completely unaffected as they sit back and relax in their very colourful hammocks!!

10th August

Our animals have been the subject of a special photoshoot today. James Waterhouse, who uses the services at Daisy Chain, has been busy out on the farm photographing our animals. We thought the pictures were so good that we should share them with everyone so here is a special selection from today!



Rats enjoy hammocks

August 8th 2012




Have a look at our rats, Rihanna, Michelle and Rayann enjoying a lounge in their new hammocks donated by fuzzbutt.co.uk.


Rats have a bad reputation, but that is only the wild rats that come out at night. Our rats are domesticated and are highly intelligent creatures. They can be trained to be friendly and spend lots of time keeping  themselves clean and tidy.


As you can see from the picture they come in all shapes and sizes and love to relax in their furry hammocks.
