These three are so small that they slip through the holes in the egg cupboard.
This morning we had another successful Alpaca mating. True Glow came up to 'say hi' and Cocoa lay down for him this time. He also had a 'spit off' with Vienna.
In the world of alpacas, if the lady alpaca is pregnant, she doesn't want anything to do with the man alpaca and will spit at him. As a rule of thumb, you do a couple of spit offs after mating and if the lady spits both times you can fairly safely assume she's pregnant.
It's not fail safe and you can have a vet test done, but the spit off is free so we're going with that!!
Lloyd and Richard made a new boudoir for the lucky couple, and it worked a treat! The smaller the space the less the poor man has to chase the female!
I considered lighting some scented candles but they managed just fine without them.
