In the last week the Guineas have decided to sleep outside of the coop on several occasions. I was hoping that they would sleep up in the pine trees but that hasn't been the case.
Since the snowstorm destroyed the protective netting the Guineas can come and go from the coop area as they please. Their first night out the Guineas decided to sleep on the group in a pile inside the fenced coop area. The next few times they perched on the fence around the coop. Yesterday, as shown in the pictures, the Guineas actually slept on the deck railing by the house.
A week ago Mary over at Big Oaks Farm posted that her Jesse crowed for the first time. It was funny because Leopold crowed for the first time that week as well!
Leopold is still a novice at crowing because he gets confused and has been crowing in the morning AND at dusk every evening. It must be hard being the only rooster and having to also serve as the King of the Guineas.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
