Right place at the right time! More baby pictures!!!

Check this out!

Tonight I was in the right place at the right time!  I snuck around the goat pen and ended up by my fence just about the time the adult guineas were moving.  The babies were on one side of the fence and the adults were on the other side.  And then......

The babies came through the fence - right between my feet!

That little fuzzy spot of blue in the up left corner is me! 

Isn't this baby cute!  They are all hatched with stripes like this - but in all different colors.  These are still very young so they don't have any real feathers except on the very tips of their wings.  You can just barely see the little wing feather on this baby.  Look at the baby's right wing and you can see where it is smoother and not quite as fluffy.

Here are some of the little ones heading over to mama and the other adults.  The grey one is the mama.

And off they go! There are more babies than what you see here - six or seven - *roflol* it is really hard to count them because they move so fast!

So, now you have Funtry Friday part two on Saturday *winks* Hope you're having a great weekend!

  7. They are adorable! after your last post I went to google them to see how they sound, and found myself on Youtube, where I proceeded to watch several videos of guinea hens. So thanks to you, the rest of the night was spent in front of my computer, enjoying these hens, then I proceeded to peacock videos, then chickens, lol! Needless to say, no art was done, haha!
