Down the road in Bushbury, Northycote Farm has welcomed seven more woolly wonders following another successful lambing season.
And the Shropshire lambs are settling in well at their new home after entering the world over the last couple of weeks.
The seventh lamb was safely delivered at the popular farm and country park last week and the group of four females and three males will now spend the next few days in the warmth of the farmâ€™s barn before going out to frolic in the fields for the first time later this week.
Farm manager Ian Nicholls, who has been checking on the ewes every three hours, 24 hours a day, during the lambing season, said: â€œThe ewes have been superb again this year and we are delighted to say that we have a very healthy group of lambs.
â€œThey are certain to prove a big draw for our visitors and I am sure they are looking forward to being the centre of attention when they go on show for the first time later this week. Weâ€™re hoping people will come along to our May Day celebrations on Monday May 7, 2012, between 11am and 4pm to see them, too.â€
He added: â€œWeâ€™ll be keeping the females here on the farm and, as usual, at some point weâ€™ll try and find a new home for the males.â€
The lambs join Northycote Farmâ€™s 21-strong flock of Shropshire sheep and mark the latest additions to an historic breed which originated in the hills of Shropshire and North Staffordshire during the 1840s.
