Apple, Rhubarb & Custard

Apple, rhubarb and custard digging in to a nice feed. They came to us 8 days ago after being found alone in a compost heap. They are doing very well, and as you can see, on solid food.

They will almost certainly be with us for the winter, unless they can pile on a lot of weight to enable them to hibernate safely.
