As we finished bringing the new ram lamb and his mother safely into a stall, we heard another new baby cry. This little goat had just kidded in the tractor shed on the hay. We would usually leave a new mama and baby for a while so that they have plenty of time to bond but the chickens had discovered them. The chickens can be very annoying and even dangerous as they peck and pull at the new one or even at the mother. We swooped mama and baby up and relocated them to a stall where mama went right back to work cleaning up her new one.
