So … today we made an adjustment to our poultry quarters … we changed up the occupants! Miss Charlie and her ensemble were in too much jeopardy with the road … and it was getting very difficult to hear each other talk out there even if we were side by side. So after some consideration we took a look at a farm family just starting out who were looking for some Guineas. Horse farm with a beautiful barn space for the Guins.
These four were mysteriously well behaved on our trip down to their new digs. They just kept eyeing the scenery passing by and cooed and trilled at each other. It wasn’t until we had moved them into their new barn – with fresh hay and an amazing amount of room – that they began to sing in style! Ede thought we should make our exit as quickly as possible at that point! 😉
Having let Cari and Owen in on our plans Cari offered to give us three of her current poults. They are just over two weeks old. Of course I jumped at the opportunity! Before we got through the paddock Rosie and Darby wanted to know just what I was moving in now! They look very tiny in the coop after having the Guineas there. It will be fun nurturing them and seeing what chickens are like. Names will have to follow once I’ve sat with them for a while.
There is always something interesting happening around here!
