Two alpacas offer hen protection
Tremayne Farm, near Camborne, has taken on two Peruvian alpacas – named William and Harry – to keep predators away.

Alpacas
Farm manager Giles Greenhough said: “Because of the alpacas’ nature, they’ll take up the role of becoming guardians of the flock.”
Farm director Lisa Rowe added: “Alpacas are used extensively in Australia and New Zealand to safeguard sheep.”
She added: “We know that happy hens lay the tastiest eggs and for that reason, we recruited the alpacas.”
