Now if you recall we had a nice February thaw (poor Mr. Snowman) and on the 19th, obviously after that young lady turkey and her friend spread the word) a whole gaggle....ummmm "rafter" of turkeys showed up in the yard.There was another rafter across the road but maybe they'd already met the Guinea kids and had, shall we say, an understanding. It took a little while but this bunch of about 20, each of which was no less than twice the size of my kids, to make it around back. Here they meet, guineas to the right, turkeys to the left.Now I'm not quite sure what it is that makes guineas look formidable to these big gobblers... ...I even think the turkeys were wondering the same thing. Maybe it was the noise alone that turned them away, but to tell you the truth the kids weren't all that loud...just persistent. We'll just follow them to make sure they get the message. Looks like we've made ourselves semi loud and clear.Well, let's just check to make sure. Very good then! Those silly birds!
