Not Fast Enough
Yesterday the Guinea boy spent the afternoon chasing one of the girls all over the yard, it was really fun to watch. The girl (pictured above) would at times extend her wings and glide across the yard as she ran, it was like a guinea ballet.
The grass is slowly starting to cover the dirt road that was put in last year that allowed the heavy equipment to haul in the dirt base for the sheep barn. The guineas seem to just glide across the grass.
They ran and ran all afternoon, the Royal Guinea boy will be missed by the girl guineas as well as myself.
We are now down to five guineas, they have done a great job of eliminating the ticks so I may need to get a few more to increase the flock.
