WIN!: Tractor Ted DVD and free entry to Fenland lambing weekend as farm welcomes orphaned lambs

THE ewes are getting fatter and in the next two weeks they will give birth to their lambs - and to celebrate a Fenland farm is holding a lambing weekend.

Between 25 and 50 lambs will be born at Pigeons Farm at Thorney and the two-day event offers the chance to feed the new arrivals.

Chicks, rabbits and guinea pigs will also be on show, which runs from March 19-20, whilst visitors will also be able to wander around craft stalls and play on a jumping pillow.

Linda Moore, of Pigeons Farm, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to bring the family for a really great deal of fun over the two days.

“We can never say to the minute when lambs will arrive but usually there are some born during these two days and of course on other days at this time.”

Tractor Ted is also visiting from the West Country to spend two days with his young fans. Last year, Tractor Ted attended one of the two days but attracted more than 1,000 visitors.

Families can also explore a combine harvester and other farm machinery.
