Sorry to miss you NanaKat. I was extremely tired, having been working on a new guinea fowl pen l week--wasn't building it myself, but had supervise pretty closely and then Vashi and I put up the wire walls; not quite finished yet. Built the old guinea pen around 20 years ago, and expansions and repairs are now too far gone to continue on it.
I think I got to see just about all the rest our "gang" and enjoyed it a lot! Didn't win any top honors (got several best or reserve of variety and my beautiful paint silkie pullet won best non standard variety), but my birds showed well and I sold all I brought to sell. I'm now way down to 45 birds; usually have from 60 to 120. No babies now. I did buy one really nice bearded white naked neck silkie (showgirl) cockerel. That means I have only two more males than pens.
