Each week, we ask you to share your questions about farming, food or Sacrewell with us on Facebook. The person who writes the best question wins a free tractor ride for a child and accompanying adult, as well as having their question answered on our website. This question came from Kate Baker’s son.
Peacock babies are called peachicks, though you won’t find any peachicks at Sacrewell as we only have male peacocks and no peahens.
We thought you might be interested to know the correct terms for the male, the female and the baby of some other animals that we have on the farm too.
|Animal||Adult male||Adult female||Young|
|horse or pony||stallion||mare||foal|
For some animals, farmers also use different words for adult animals which are used for breeding and adult animals which aren’t. Here are two examples:
|Animal||Castrated male||Breeding male||Young female||Breeding female|
