Gutsy9  is now a week and a day old and he can already fly. He can fly from the floor up to my lap and from my lap up to my shoulder! And if he falls off my shoulder, while I am walking around, he simply uses his little wings for a soft landing.

  1. Life is fine and dandy for the little fellow then 😉

  2. Clever Gutsy9. I didn’t think a chick could do any flying quite so soon.

    Love your domestics 🙂 The animals – what a life!

  6. He is getting bigger everyday! He seems to be such a wonderful companion. 🙂

    That is amazing! I notice his wings are growing in much the same way as the guineas do. Much larger and cape like. What a fun companion. 😉

    A milestone for Gutsy9! Exciting 🙂 !

    I’d have never guessed he’d learn to fly so soon! Gutsy is living up to his name. Way to go, little guy!

      If he’d been raised by his mother (whoever she is!) by now he’d be flying up into the trees with her to sleep under her wings at night. He seems to think my shoulder is a branch! And my shirt is a wing I guess – so funny!

  13. He is so cute and I didn’t think he would learn to fly so soon………..

    I’m glad to hear the little guy is still doing well!

    Cute little one … only to grow up very quickly! Are you in the southern hemisphere?

  16. So sweet and then suddenly pseudo-adult in the second photo, like a 10 year old driving a car.
