wings and things


on August 25, 2012

Guinnea fowl [they always chatter in unison]: This feather littering has to stop. It ruins the look of the lawn.

It’s about time we saw Julie about this and reminded her that we were here first and we do NOT shed feathers like those rotten peacocks, especially the white ones. Look at this beautiful lawn – its aesthetics are ruined by white feathers!

Okay, let’s have a chat to Julie right now! The back veranda door is the best place. Come on!

JULIE!!!! JULIE!!!!!!

Oh, that is just great isn’t it. That white peacock or peahen or whatever it is beat us to it and now Julie is laughing at us. It isn’t fair!

Angelina [our smallest white peahen]: Are they gone yet, Julie?

Julie: You can feather-dust the lawn anytime, Angelina.

    (loud laughter!) I have the same problem, in the barn!! The peacock feathers will grow back won’t they? There is a vase full of feathers out there! Angelina is the perfect name for this peahen.. You really do have a lot of guineas, my four are loud enough!

  2. tell them white feathers are good luck and to stop complaining!

    LOL !! This is adorable — These hens are used here to eat the ticks that cause Lyme disease (think i may have told you that back when and you don’t get those ticks there – thank goodness)… Feather littering — I like that (save some of those feathers for me – remember)!! xxoo

    They are marching in unison! How funny! Question: How many birds do you have?

    • jmgoyder says:

      4 roosters, 6 chooks, 3 ducks, 2 turkeys, 3 white peacocks, a dozen coloured peacocks/fowl, a dozen guinnea fowl, 1 golden pheasant, 1 weiro, 5 geese, 2 turkeys.
      There were more of all of these birds but we have a fox problem.
