CUTEST BABY FARM ANIMALS
One of my favourite parts about spring on the homestead is the addition of new baby farm animals! From calves, to chicks and ducklings the cutest is never ending.
When beginner homesteaders start raising farm animals, they often consider adding cute baby farm animals first. I know that was me when we first got started!
If you’re thinking about raising farm animals, here are some things you might consider other than just how cute they are 😉
But simply viewing some of the cutest baby farm animals for your own enjoyment is completely aloud! Thats why so many people with land offer petting farms and farm events as just one of the many ways that homesteaders can make money.

WHAT ARE BABY FARM ANIMALS CALLED?
Ever wonder what the your favorite farm animal baby is called? Check this handy alphabetical list for the names of male, female and baby farm animals.
Animal – Baby Name
Rabbit- Kitten, Bunny, Kit
Groups of chickens that live freely establish an order of importance among themselves to determine who eats first and who sleeps where.
Chickens wash with dust rather than water and clean their feathers with their beaks.
They can see in colors just like you and I.
They also sleep extremely well and fall into deep REM sleeps.
Hens know their babies and like to take care of them.
The duck is a number of species in the Anatidae family of birds. …
Ducks are mostly aquatic birds living in both fresh water and sea water and found on every continent except for Antarctica.
A male duck is called a drake, a female duck a hen, and a baby duck a duckling.
Ducks are omnivores.
A young rabbit is called a kit (or kitten).
Rabbits live in groups.
The European rabbit lives underground, in burrows.
More than half of the world’s rabbits live in North America.
Rabbits have long ears which can be as long as 10 cm (4 in).
Pigs roll around in the mud to cool off because they don’t sweat.
Despite being stereotyped as dirty, pigs are actually rather clean.
Given enough space, pigs will relieve themselves as far from their sleeping area as possible.
Like puppies, young pigs enjoy playing with toys and with other piglets. They also like being around people and enjoy a good scratch behind the ears or on the belly.
While pigs prefer to spend the majority of their day at rest, they are capable of running roughly 11 miles per hour.
Pigs also communicate with each other using more than 20 different noises.
Although one sheep may look like any other to a person, members of the same flock have been known to recognize one another even after years of separation.
A flock is a social group and a defense mechanism, facing threats together. When a sheep’s fleece is shaved, it must be done in one piece, with the person doing it also holding the sheep still.
Some goats are born with horns and the horns continue to grow for the goat’s entire life. Goats are not only skilled swimmers; they can also climb trees and traverse a ledge as deftly as a circus high-wire performer.
That is why it’s highly reccomended to build a playground for your goats!

SCOTTISH HIGHLAND CALF
A male cow’s horns feature rings, the number of which roughly equals its age.
Don’t assume a cow is tired or lazy because it is lying down. This is sometimes a reaction to a change in atmospheric pressure before a storm.
With a sense of smell so strong, cows are able to detect scents up to five or six miles away.
Like many domesticated pets, cows learn and react to the names they are given by people.
They are even known to form cow “cliques” within the herd.
Herds of Scottish Highlands are called Folds named after the open shelters they can be kept in over winter.
Mother Highlands are known for often breeding beyond the age of 18 and raising 15 or more calves in their lifetime!
