Alpaca & Muscovy

Heatwave and belated Cria drop at Kensmyth, Clay Meadow

Alpaca simply delay their pregnancy when the weather is not right and that means dysmature cria which look full term but often are not there yet. We have had numerous females “hold off” so far this year but started in the heatwave.

Despite their origins – hot temperatures kill newborns – so into the barns they go complete with Nannies so Mums are not alone!
