Located at the farthest end of the park, the Jenny Wren Farm is very popular, particularly with our younger visitors. Here you will find nearly every type of farm animal imaginable! In addition to the traditional goats, pigs, chickens and sheep there is also a huge variety of other animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, mice and ferrets, many of which can be handled or stroked during the daily ‘Animal Encounter’ sessions.
After touching any animals at Birdworld, we would always recommend cleaning your hands well with water and lathered soap. Hand washing facilities can be found at the exit of the farm and of course in all of the toilet facilities. We would also recommend that the farm is not the best place to eat your lunch. You would invariably be joined by some of the farm residents who sadly lack the social graces of the English picnic!
Many of the smaller animals, chickens and even goats are available to purchase, as Birdworld operates its own licensed pet sales area. This is the ideal place to purchase smaller ‘fluffy’ pets as they are already used to being handled by children, making them friendlier from day one. From our chickens and ducks, there is a plentiful supply of free-range farm eggs, which can usually be purchased from the farm or main entrance shop.
Although not traditionally a farm animal in this country, reindeer can also be found amongst the large variety of animals on the Jenny Wren Farm. Often associated with Christmas, Birdworld’s reindeer do indeed help Santa in December to be an important part of Santa’s Winter Wonderland!
The farm is an area where many of the animals roam freely amongst the visitors. From pigs and sheep, to ducks, ferrets and chickens, we have everything you’d expect to find in a lovely farmyard setting. The goat field can be accessed during the peak season, we have a friendly peacock wandering freely among visitors and there are always lots of chickens to meet. We also have a well stocked pet shop where you can buy small mammals, farm animals, poultry and even stick insects!
