Springtime at Backyard to Bush has arrived along with bouncing baby animals, from tiny fluffy chicks to cute goat kids.
The latest additions are five gorgeous piglets born two weeks ago.
Parents Max and Star welcomed two females and three males into the Backyard to Bush stye, all weighing in at 1kg.
Max and Star are miniature pigs crossed with wild boar giving them fantastic colours and hairy bodies. Both Max and Star are well trained pigs, able to sit, present their hooves for treatment and go for walks with the keepers.
The piglets are enjoying being out and about, playing in the mud and getting up to all kinds of mischief. They are proving a lot of hard work for their parents.
