We bring a 2 metre x 6 metre pen that is divided into 3 sections. The middle section contains baby chicks, ducklings, rabbits, guinea pigs, larger chickens and ducks that we wrap in tea towels for the children to pick up and hold. In one end pen we have the animals to bottle feed – lambs, kids and piglet. We take these out of the pen and the children feed them the bottle of milk. The other end of the pen has a pony for pony rides.
The pens can be set up on a grassed or paved area or inside a garage or carport area in the event of rain. We lay down tarpaulins to protect paved areas. The pony rides can be done on either a grassed or paved area – even up and down your driveway if space is an issue. Birthday parties are for one hour – we set up prior to the hour and pack away after the hour.

An hour long presentation couples an entertaining show with an educational talk about each of the farm animals. The children meet and learn about the role on the farm of a rooster, a hen, a duck, a goose and a sheep dog. The special features of sheep, alpaca and miniature horse are discussed. All of the children get to help feed a bottle of milk to the lambs, kids, piglet and calf. The children get to hold the baby chicks,
ducklings and rabbits.
We can set up on the oval, in the Pre Primary/Kindy area or in the undercover area or Kindy/Pre Primary verandah in the event of rain.
For the benefit of the children and the comfort of the animals school groups are limited to 50 children attending each one hour session.
