|The quintessential barnyard rooster...|
|...who poses for the camera by fluffing his feathers...|
|...and crowing. Repeatedly.|
|It was almost impossible to get a photo of the whole flock because every time I squatted down to take a picture, they came dashing toward me, hoping for goodies! Anyway, the three guineas are right behind the Barred Rock in the front.|
We were saddened at the fate of the guinea, but then lo and behold - all three were waiting for us when we woke up later in the morning! And you know what? They have ditched the tree and have been safely roosting with the Barred Rocks ever since!
So there you have it - our motley crew of poultry. We may soon be mixing them again with the 20 Rhode Island Reds so they can all spend the winter in the hoop house (updates coming soon - we're almost done). Any fiascoes that will ensue remain to be seen.
