THERE IS STILL TIME TO SIGN UP FOR THE CLOTHESPIN BAG. SCROOL DOWN!!!
Two Daddies, one Momma and five babies
You have to look real close. On the right hand side on the ground are the 5 little guineas. They were so cute with their momma and daddies, We have farm cats and I was afraid that they would kill them. I will catch the momma tonight and put her with her babies.
The girls and I were running all around trying to catch the babies. They got in the tall grass and made it easy for us to catch them. They are sooo tiny. I can't believe how loud one of the little guineas is . Must be a little boy. smile!
They are living in a little bird cage right now. I will try and can get their momma caught tonight. She is out calling all over for them. She will probably come in to the coop tonight. I feel bad I have her babies. She is still looking for them. At least I saved them from our cats.
Now to finish the story. I ran out of time this last weekend to tell the end. Anyway here goes.
We tried to catch the momma, she was to fast.......... no success! Thought we would see at night if she would be in the chicken coop. She was not. We would have to wait till morning. Finally on Sunday morning I decided to take the little cage outside to see if she would come to her babies. I took it down stairs in the brooder house (it used to be an old storage place for the milk when Grandpa Jack had a dairy). It is my little chick place for the babies to grow up in before I put them with my flock. She came a running down the steps and got by her babies in the cage. I opened the door and they all hopped out by their momma. I love it that she can raise them instead of me. They peeped all day wanting their momma who never came the night before. It made me sad. Momma is happy with her little ones all tucked safe under her. I will take more pictures of the babies when I have time.
The dad is protecting the building. Toooo cute to watch how the dads take care of Mom and babies. The males can hear her in the brooder house. She talks so sweet to her babies. A real soft clucking sound. I love motherhood, no matter what it is. I would still be having children, if the Lord would let me. I will probably say that till the day I die. For all those momma's out there enjoy every minute. The hard and the good times. It is here and gone before you know it.
Well I need to get back to painting. The fabric is almost done, will be out today! Can't wait. I love to paint, but this stress is not fun!!!! It happens every year two different times. Smile. Hope your weekend was a blessing!
