Can you stand another lamb-related story?
Monday, May 19, 2008
It seems our little crew has taken it upon themselves to torment the four remaining farm guinea fowl. Not a difficult task, really. The poor guineas can't figure their way out of a paper bag... on a good day....
...And to them, everything-- everything!-- is cause for earsplitting alarm. Now, I'll admit I sort of like the sound-- puts me in mind of a day at the beach, a great wall of sound crashing, ebbing, flowing around the yard. Dan is not so thrilled with it (and likely our neighbors, the folks in the next town, next county, and everywhere else agree).
Last week we finally discovered a secret purpose for our little guinea quartet. Our lambs enjoy a good wild fowl chase. Especially when one forlorn little guy forgets it can fly over the fence and spends an hour or two dodging woolies and CH-CH-CH-CHIPPing up a storm.
Somebody remind me: Aside from sheeply entertainment, what exactly are guinea fowl good for?
