Boy, last night we thought an alpaca was going to give birth. She showed all the signs – fretfulness, laying on her side, and moving with a general ‘baby’s a comin’” attitude. Interestingly, alpaca usually only give birth during daylight. So, while I checked on her every two hours for 24-hours, she remains cria-less.
It could take up to two weeks for an alpaca to deliver! So we will wait, for a surprise baby or not. With 70 degree weather and April approaching, I say bring all the babies you’d like! I’m not scared!
