OMG, I had the same thing happen to a guinea not once but twice to the same bird. How is that even possible. And to make matters worse mine are wild so I ended up with a cut on my face for saving the bugger. These animals really keep you on your toes.
ouch I am sooo glad that chickens are calm! Congrats to you, I had guinea's once and even though I raised them from babies they were never calm I could not have caught one of them! :)Kim
I love that picture of your mom's hands holding the chicken. How I miss my mom, more now than when she passed in 1998. She came from WV and her mother had guineas. My mom told me that everytime her sister Atlea came home, one guinea would attack her. Out of 12 children, that guinea only went after Atlea. Knowing Aunt Atlea, she probably did something to her as a peep. LOL. Again, great pic.
When I was 8 and Rick was 6 there was one guinea that mom and dad had that would attack Rick or chase him aroung the yard, same thing here we thought Rick did something to make her not like him! I know what you mean about your mom, I miss my dad so much!Kim
I've helped do that before..poor chickens don't have the sense to tell us..bless their hearts..Susie
Chickens are so calm and also so much fun to watch running around the yard (all the colors) but if there is something to get into they will (kinda like my goats) :)
Beautiful picture. I love the hands. What a blessing that you have your mom with you, and able to be a part of your daily life. I miss my mom something terrible.~~Lori
Sorry to hear you no longer have your mom Lori, I lost my dad and I miss him so much. I do feel blessed that hubby and I could work it out that I can stay home and take care of her.Kim
Please leave a comment, would love to hear from you :)
