Thank you!! We live 3 miles from the Fort Dix McQuire AFX Mega Base. You feel as though you can touch the belly of the huuuuumongous carrier planes as they pass over my yard!  We started with a couple cats, then a dog and then the guineas and chickens. The cats & dog helped a little, but the guineas and chickens really helped the most. Hubby rarely leaves the safe confines of our home, but with the birds, he's out tending to them daily and sometimes we get to go out and eat or something like that! For us, that's a biiig deal.

We will never know what went on in Nicaragua...  never   :hugshugs to him....  Hugs to you for standing by him....

"some of us will never know!!" and that may be a good thing. Again, thank you. I could never walk away from him, he is my soulmate and means the world to me  and we made the decision to work through anything no matter how difficult... and besides, you should see him when he's chasing the mobster monsters around the yard!!

Well, I did something right, I guess! I gave my Guineas adequate protein so I have the reformed Guineas.....no real hard core criminals in my flock......yet!

My gang seems to stay away from petty theft. Instead they run protection schemes.

"So? Got any millet hanging around that we could take off your hands for you"?
One Dear Husband, two children, one cat, one fish, a various number of chicken depending on how hungry the fox has been, guineas who rule the roost, 12 chicks and my broody hen who is the best Mama ever.

You think, until you awaken in the middle of the night to find a guinea holding a pillow over your face....
