Hi Helen! I have 13 left out of 16. Two males were killed from agression eary on and one female had some kind of growth problem. I had one little female that somehow hurt her leg really bad and I thought she would never make it. I brought her food and water for about 3 weeks. I would carry her outside to sit in the sun every now and then and worried so much about her. Tuesday I looked outside and she was leading the pack! We named her Gimpy, and even Ole had her in his mouth at one time. (He didn't hurt her at all but he got in Very Big Trouble!) She is one of my favorites and although she is a bit smaller than the rest she is one of the best flyers!!

What kind of signal are they sending or receiving here?? Love this pose! Glad the little one is doing better and is now showing her strong personality..shhh but we girls know that females usually exhibit those characteristics of leadership and strength, silently of course !! tee he

LOL! You should frame that one! Reading your response to Helen...I guess when you can't walk, you got to fly! My little goldfinch with the hurt leg is still surviving and luckily she can fly well. Saw her sitting in the drive yesterday and she almost let me pick her up! Those injured ones become the fiestiest sometimes!

Looking that that photo, it seems to me that they are sending Guinea talk into outer space and are waiting for a reply! (-:

You are such a riot, Eve - that is so funny! Great shot!

How do they watch TV?

They look at (the) SKY

or they just sat-in-the-light.

No perhaps not. I'll shut up now.

Eve said...

Ha Ha! Ok Roy, maybe I should have captioned this one...

How funny. We had Guineas years ago and I remember how comical they were, but we never did get them to come in at night. Great watchdogs!
