Animals

Every summer Huble Homestead is home to a number of different animals, which helps bring the historic site to life!

Please be sure to visit in 2021 to say hello to the chickens and rabbits!

Sheep

Newly shorn sheep graze in the grass.

The sheep program at Huble Homestead is on hold for the 2021 season, and will return for the summer in 2022.

This program has been made possible by the generosity of Roma and Jim Tingle of Glenbirnam Farm.

Rabbits

Over the years, the rabbit pen has been a popular stop for both children and adults. In addition to being a visitor favourite, the staff can frequently be found cuddling baby bunnies throughout the summer months.

 

Percy Maskell of Salmon Valley has been providing the rabbits for Huble Homestead for over ten years.

Chickens

The chickens at Huble Homestead in 2020 were hatched prior to the beginning of the summer season by Shirley Gebert. Popular with visitors, the chickens are always happy to be fed bread crumbs and blades of grass!

Wildlife

Huble Homestead Historic Site is located outside of Prince George, and is situated in the Northern BC wilderness. In addition to the animals kept on site, Huble Homestead has played host to a variety of animal and bird visitors throughout the years. When visiting, please remember that the area is shared with the wildlife in the area.
