The Lavender Guinea also has a habit of racing down the driveway with the dogs whenever a visitor arrives.
After the visitor parks his vehicle, Mr. Guinea proceeds to inspect the tires, being sure to neaten them up by nipping off any little rubber "hairs" on the wall of the tire . . . and then peering at himself in the shiny bumpers and hub-caps . . . (rather narcissistic in his little Guinea heart).
Sierra is a good girl . . . a Border/Aussie cross . . . and she takes care of all the critters here . . . so I wasn't surprised the other day when I saw her guarding an egg between her paws . . .
a GUINEA EGG . . . which she carefully carried around and protected from the other dogs.
Another sign of spring . . . Squawking, attack Guineas and abandoned Guinea children . . .
At this rate, there won't be any more Guineas running around the farm,
and to be honest . . . that's okay with me.
