Is there a rehab for an Alpaca?

We have an alpaca at the ranch who is quite the clown. His name is Thing. He can be very entertaining.

Thing the chicken grain addict
He loves chicken feed so much, that when I walk into the Alpaca's pen to feed the chickens, I have to have my husband fend off Thing. He will follow me and try to get his head into the bucket to eat all of the chicken grain.

If Thing can't get his head into the bucket then he tries plan B. He gets his head into the chicken coop thru the opening that the chickens use  to come and go outside.

There is nothing more funny than for me to be in the chicken coop feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs to see this!

Once he gets his fix for the day, then he just wanders off to eat hay with the rest of the guys. He may be a pain to us at chore time, but we still love him.

    1. You are welcome to come & live here Edie. You will be expected to entertain Thing while I feed the chickens. ;) I'm glad you enjoy the blog. I enjoy writing about the animals when I have time to do it.
