    Help!

    We have the opportunity to rescue 2 young alpacas(there are more but we don't think we could cope with more than 2).

    We already have chicks and ducks, a goat on the way and the usual billion or so barn cats.
    We have 12 acres of land-3 of which is already fenced and contained a horse last summer((neighbours horse likes to graze there)).
    We have a building that is usable((about 20x20 feet)) as soon as we put doors on it.
    I only work a couple hours a week so I'll be able to give them the time they'll need.

    I need to know anything and everything you can tell me!
    We have to decide by march 4th.

    I would go ahead with it if you think you have the finances to feed them, care for them, sounds like you have the space


    I have never had alpacas, but would love to have some....ah well probably not gonna happen any time soon...no space/money...
