With only 10 days until our first cria (baby alpaca) is due, things are getting exciting on Hilltop Farm Alpacas. Apollo's tummy has dropped a little further and the cria is really moving around inside. It appears to be an active little one. According to those who know, it is better that the mother goes full term because her cria will be stronger. Some alpaca owners have had mothers who have gone up to 40 days over their due date. I'm not sure if UI could handle the nerves for that length of time given that this is our first time.
I'll keep you all posted.
