Funny video, it would definitely want inside if it were here this morning, it was 8 degrees outside.

Eve said...

Brrrr...we're at 19. They won't like that at all but we should get up to 33. Glad you liked the video!
;-)

Eve - this made me laugh so hard! The guinea definitely had a determined knock and wanted to come in!

The Birdlady said...

What a riot! And those temps are too much for my thin southern blood to comtemplate...I haven't been out yet, but have to walk Emily in a few minutes.

Mary said...

LOL! Maybe you need a Guinea pet flap! You've treated them like family and they want to come to dinner and stay awhile :-) Wonder what they might think if you serve turkey...thanks, I suppose, that it isn't guinea!

Jenny said...

Hi Evie, this completely cracked me up! (-: That Guinea had such a forceful knock, how could you resist??? Fantastic post, made my day!

Tina said...

LOL, you crack me up!! Loved the video! I'm surprised his beek doesn't hurt after all that tapping. Maybe you need to install a guinea doorbell..just in case!

Robin said...

LOL! Guinea something good to eat - very clever!

We had a black silkie rooster that knocked on the kitchen door, came in to get a drink from the dogs' water bowl, ate from his own bowl, walked around the dining room and pecked when he was ready to go back out. He never pooped on the floor.

A Rod Stewart song comes to mind. (Hot Legs)

Who's that knocking at the door!!
Its gotta be a quarter to four.

Lynne said...

LOL! My husband and I both laughed. Now Art wants to have Guineas when we retire to Hasty Brook!

Or does the bird see his reflection. We have that a lot at our back window with a cardinal.

Eve said...

Thanks everyone! I'm glad you enjoyed the video!

Robert you are right, guinea fowl love to see their reflections (who could resist that sweet face) and have been enjoying their reflections in my glass door!

Ah ha ha...this was so great, I had to call Jim over to watch! :-)

Wrensong Farm said...

Boy! Does that look/sound familiar! :) At my old house they would always be pecking on the sliding glass door!

One time, at the house I'm in now, I came home to find my front porch all in disarray...plant stands knocked over, bird poo everywhere. I couldn't figure out what had happened until a neighbor came by and told me my Border Collie, Finn, had herded all the guineas up on the front porch and had kept them there for hours! :)

Mary said...

Love that new header shot! What an expression!

Denise said...

Oh I had to laugh at that video, showed Gregg your great header photo too. I can honestly say I have never seen a guinea close enough to see that beautiful face. Loved all your photos below, the guineas of course, but your sky photos and also those beautiful berries.

Eve said...

Thanks Mary me too!!

Thanks Denise,
That was a fun video to post! You made me smile! Thanks!

Bird Girl said...

Now that is just too funny, Eve! They do have STRONG beaks! When I had the pheasant 'Tiny Tim' who became part of our family for about 4 months - he also pecked at our sliding glass door for food. I got him to eat corn out of my hand - BIG MISTAKE!! It actually cut me - the pecking was so powerful it brought blood! I never did that again...be warned ;-)
I loved the knock, knock joke!

Stacey Huston said...

LOL, What good puppies you have. Mine would have been barking their heads off.. lol thanks for sharing Eve

Eve said...

Ha Ha Stacey...remember Ole wanted to eat them...he just lays out there on the porch with them now!! Daisy could care less!! Ha Ha!!

Hi... Nice to meet you and your blog. I came to visit via Shelley's blog. When she posted about your Guinea's I just had to come over and see. I grew up with these birds as my parents always had them. A lot of people have never heard of them. They are wonderful watch dogs and have such personality, like your video shows! Very funny and cute.
