Ducklings, lambs and even a shetland pony are helping to attract half-term crowds to Braintree today.

Gemma's Farm came to George Yard to introduce children to the joy of keeping animals. 

Cherry the shetland pony, Bob the cockerel and Roo the collie were all star attractions along with a pen of fluffy chicks. 

The event will continue throughout the day.

GEORGE YARD BIRD SQUEEZING COMPETITION

Little un on the left is so trying her hardest - but I reckon big friend on the right has got a bit of an unfair advantage on her.

Squawk!!

I hate seeing animals exploited like this. A busy (questionable) shopping centre is probably a stressful environment for animals used to living on a farm.
