    i'm in the living room browsing BYC, folding laundry and watching the roast in the oven when out of the corner of my left eye i spy 'something' on the roof.

    i let out a lovely howl and then snapped some photos...



    i think they feel at home here. i'm not for sure, but i'm thinking maybe. [​IMG]

    they are about 24 weeks old. they release themselves from the runs everyday. today is the first day they decided to get up on our house.

    i already made a pie today, so they aren't getting cake. i will try baking them some sugar cookies and see if that will appease them. cookies were necessary for my son's school party tomorrow, so that's what they get! [​IMG]

    That's great. I heard something the other day that sounded like Santa and his 8 reindeer on the rooftop and when I went out the back door and looked up it was my 30 guineas!!!! They flew up in the big pecan tree, flew over to the roof, and where getting a good running start and flying off the roof to the pasture. They were all lined up in a row running like the wind. They were too quick for me to get a pic though. We live in an OLD 2 story plantation type home and we have 12 foot ceilings on both stories, so my roof is like 3 stories high. They were WAY up there just like it wasn't anything.
