Animals at the mill

Come see the animals at our "farm"

The recently renovated hen house has just welcomed 10 little hens (5 black and 5 brown) and one young cock, who is so proud of his harem!

Since then, we have had two huge broods! We can now count fifteen new residents and we are expecting the next batch of little chicks any time now!

Our little family of donkeys arrived on May 1st 2010, (at the same time as the lily of the valley!)

The daddy's name is Polly, the mommy's name is Roxy and their baby, who is called Antigone, was born just after their arrival at the mill. She is absolutely adorable, just as docile as her parents, but a lot more mischievous!

On August 15th, we welcomed our two sheep - a rare and beautiful race: "Thônes and Marthod". The ram is called Eodipe and the little ewe is called Cérès. Both of them are very young. They were born in October and are particularly docile.

On December 1st, two new members joined the farm: Gédéon and Léone, a couple of 11-month old peacocks.

In spite of their youth, Oedipe and Cérès have just given birth to their first baby! The tiny female, called Cybèle, was born on February 3rd.

She is absolutely gorgeous and not much bigger than a cat! And already very bright! She is jumping all over the place in spite of the fact that she's only 2 days old!

You can also feed the trout and the ducks in the canal, who come right up to the edge to eat what you have thrown in.
