    I was outside making sure everyone was going to roost. One of my young (3-4 month) guineas was on the wrong side of the building and 'lost' (you know how they are). So here I am, trying to 'shoo' it around the building, and my dad's stupid, idiotic dog that is always under my feet comes running right up to me (of course on the side that the guinea is on). Of course the guinea freaked, and flew right at my face!! I think it tore completely through my lip with its nail [​IMG] [​IMG] I wish I could catch that $#%@! dog, I'd lay it on him bigtime!!

    heheh... I made the big mistake of trying to bring a kitten closer to my dogs and it decided to scratch it's way up my face.

    OUUUUCHIES!

    So, I can relate. Sorry about your incident.

    I have to admit, I laughed a little while picturing a guinea flying up at your face and the dog at your feet, then I read that you got hurt. Thats no fun! [​IMG] I'm sorry for giggling at first... And I'm sorry you got hurt [​IMG] Hope your lip gets better soon, and tell your dad to keep the durn dog locked up at chore time! [​IMG]

    It probably was funny, but it sure did hurt! I guess the guinea figured I was the lesser of two evils, so it chose me. I wish it would have went after the dog!! Teach him not to be underfoot so much!

    One time this spring I made the mistake of taking my pitt with me to the chicken coop. Normally this would not have been an issue... but I had cut up some bologna for my roo. I set the plate down and roo ran over and began gobbling it up. Just as I turned to leave the run, Dieses (my pitt) decided HE wanted the bologna....

    D went for the plate
    Roo thought he wanted CHICKEN dinner
    Roo flew
    Bologna flew
    Chicken poop flew
    And I ended up with...

    A panicked rooster on my shoulder, chicken crap ALL over my coat, face, mouth and hair, and one dog with a belly full of bologna and who has never EVER done that since.

    Quote:Oh my!! I'm sorry, but that is funny! My son got 'chicken-pooed' the other day when I moved a broody with her chicks. Apparently she had some on her wings, or decided to let loose while struggling with me to let her go. Either way, he got some really wet stuff on his shirt, and he stunk till I made him take a bath!

    Ouchhie! Hope your lip feels better soon Shelley.
    I've had mornings where I have to remind myself why I have animals.
    When they all start being boogerheads at once, I tell DH come deal with YOUR children!!!

    Once I had the dog thinking I was the devil incarnate I got the guinea to go the right way with no problem. That dog is almost as bad as a kid...always getting on my last nerve!

    You two have me lmao! Talking about poo... My hubby is not a big fan of my chicken obsession (as most hubbys aren't!). Well, I had an adorable little white Ameracauna hatch a few weeks ago. As was holding it and talking to my hubby, who was sitting in his plush leather lazyboy chair, I thought I will let him hold the little cutie and maybe it will soften him. Well, he was holding it in his hand and then decided to let it sit on his chest (he was reclining) and... Yup! You guessed it... The little fluffy butt had a BM right on his shirt. I grabbed the chick before he could throw it across the room (don't worry he wouldn't have) and ran away laughing so hard I almost peed my pants! When I came back after putting the chick away he was still sitting in his chair, holding his shirt away from his body (because it had soaked through!) giving me the stink eye (no pun intended!).
