  • The chicks have arrived..... - Popham Alpacas
    sort of give up and the temptation to just pull them out of the shell is almost too much to resist But eventually they appear and have soon fluffed up into adorable little chicks Its an amazing process this chicken making especially for those like me who know very little about the biological processes involved Obviously you start with a fertilised egg that bit I do understand Then when you have enough of these eggs you put them in an incubator and things start happening almost straight away Within 48 hours the head eyes nervous system and heart have formed By the end of day 4 legs and wings have begun to form Day 8 feathers start and by day nine the embryo resembles a chick Day 19 starts the hatching process because of lack of oxygen and the chick starts trying to get out Just fascinating to me I just wish alpacas could reproduce a bit more quickly sometimes and arrive on the exact day The other successful story of recent weeks here at Popham has been the biltong maker Perfect biltong within 3 4 days depending on wet you like it We have made two batches now reducing on the salt in the second batch Only problem is I can t leave it alone once I have got the taste and finish it off in no time at all This rather exceeds my red meat limit for the month all in one day Not very healthy The halter training has been going very well Here Tracy and Marie take Remarques Boy and Commander through their paces Posted in Cria Post navigation Popham Enterprises diversifies More biltong needed 2 thoughts on The chicks have arrived steve parker says 2nd March 2011 at 8 11 pm Hope there is a

  • Post Spring show hangover...... - Popham Alpacas
    the adult black huacaya Then blow me down if Thunder didn t take the championship and Equador the reserve prize Not a bad start for Thunders showing career to bag the big one first time out and don t forget the judge was the great man himself Mr Tim Hey He was very complimentary about Thunder but then we ve had a sneaky feeling he was something special all along Gomez our junior light fawn suri boy came up against the same Moonsbrook alpaca that beat him at the Futurity After what seemed like ages Matt Lloyd eventually gave the prize to the Moonsbrook alpaca and Gomez got second These two then came up against all the older animals in the championship I had a feeling if the Moonsbrook alpaca was given the championship after the comments Matt had said about how close the two juniors were that we had a chance at reserve The championship went to the junior and sure enough Gomez was pulled forward and clinched the reserve ribbon Our other results were very encouraging Dream Catcher was second in the Junior white suri male Safina second in the junior brown suri female Josh went one better than at the Futurity and took second in the white intermediate huacaya male always a tough class Alfonso got second in the junior brown huacaya male We also had a few fifths and sixths All in all a very good weekend for Popham if only it wasn t for the hangover Posted in Cria Post navigation Spring Show Great news 3 thoughts on Post Spring show hangover Rolf Barbakken Knapper Alpakka says 19th April 2010 at 3 34 pm Congrats on great results Gary Reply Mark says 19th April 2010 at 8 26 pm A very well deserved hangover it
