Still chillin' with my peeps
- Mar 13, 2008
Well, I came back from the Mayfield KY Monday weekly livestock/yard sale with 4 Golden comets, a trio of BB Reds (one bantam roo, 2 bantam pullets, one a golden laced look more gold than black and one mostly black w/ some gold), 2 pearl guinea keets approx. 6 wks., a lavender guinea keet, and a white (ah, so pretty!!!) guinea keet also about 6 wks. Since they were in adjacent quarters at the sale, I put them all in one big isolation pen with 5' sides with the guineas in a large dog kennel inside the isolation pen. That should hold 'em, right? Well, it did. Only problem is, it kept them in, but didn't keep my others OUT. Curiosity hit fast and hard. They (current flock) came bouncing all the way across the yard to see what was going on. I shooed them away back to their own pen. I came in the house to check my messages and to put water in the smaller waterers to use in the ISO pen. By the time I got back out, there were 2 AussieLorps, 3 RIR hens, one SLW hen, and 1 BR roo ALL in the pen with the newbies! They sailed over that 5' fence like it wasn't there.I tried. I really DID....
