Now that there are chicks in the greenhouse, they like to come adventurously popping out when I open up for the guineas.Greetings, part-time residents.The keets are looking, and acting, quite grownup now. First they all run by, seeing if the door is really open. Then they muster up somewhere and … all surge in at once.
Cheeks has developed a new trick. She watches and waits, and then gets right in the middle of the flock of keets and runs in with them. For a chicken, that’s a full speed dash.
It’s very funny. And totally works, because she’s right in the middle of the crowd. I still see you, Cheeks! Twice I flushed her back out of the greenhouse, once I left her in there (door closed) until chicken bedtime, and she had a lot to say about that. I was jsut looking! You didn’t have to lock me in! Now Betty will have taken my spot on the perch!
