I’ve made the observation that guineas “like” to eat grass the way addicts “like” heroin. They seem desperate for it. They’ll crowd up and rip grass so you can hear the grass getting mowed.
Just a hunch. Guineas need grass in their diet more than the average bird.So post-bobcat, I’ve been letting the guineas outside for a half hour before bed, to get their grass fix.Really? Then I stand over them, supervising, but they’re so into the grass they barely notice me. Happy little grass-eating satisfaction noises.
Now I’m going to have to grow grass for them in the winter.Yes, a couple roosters also wander out, but it’s so close to chicken bedtime that they don’t get too far. This little chick always comes out.
