Guinea Days

Yesterday I spent some quality time at the house without rushing out somewhere else.  I got to enjoy watching the guineas.  In the above photo, four guineas got up on top of my air conditioner unit and were looking into the house through a window at me.  I took this photo through the window from inside.  I love these silly birds, they make me laugh.  Aren't they just the oddest looking bird you've ever seen?

This spotted male guinea seems to be very dominant these days.  He's been leading around a flock of hens.  I can't wait for springtime to see the guineas all pair up.  I hope we have a somewhat even number of males and females this year.

It was almost 50 degrees F out yesterday.  I know much of the northeast US had a huge winter storm a couple days ago.  We got some winds, and now gorgeous weather. Here's to an early spring!  Even the wild daffodils are hoping for springtime!

The male guineas are really pretty- well their feathers are! ~ I don't think I told you I saw some guineas in Haiti. They were in a small cage though. Not half as free as yours and unfortunately I think they were bound to be someone's dinner. They don't seem to keep pets there. Animals are mostly used for work (pack horses and donkeys) or food (including cows for milking.) Most of the animals we saw were very skinny. Poor things. And cats.... well, I won't go there.

I love seeing and reading about your guineas. The photo of him looking at the camera is hilarious!

Our daffodils have been out for a while now. :o)
Have a wonderful week! ♥
