    Turns out they don't care for the snow, so they fly everywhere now. One of the young ones was even up on the roof! [​IMG] Of course it was the lavender, so it will be a great target for the hawk! Crazy goonie bird!

    Anyway, just had to share. I think it's hilarious. Especially if one lands on the opposite side of the fence than the rest, because you obviously can't fly over the fence to get to the other side. The only thing to do is run back and forth screaming your head off, while the ones on the other side are screaming their head off! What makes it even better is when the ones fly up on the fence to scream encouragement (?) while the one still runs back and forth trying to find the magic door to get to the other side!

    I [​IMG] my guineas! They have made the winter so fun!

    [​IMG] Guineas are hysterical!

    Just had to carry all my Polish chickens down to the ground from my second-story deck, 'cuz after you fly up, you OBVIOUSLY can't fly back down. [​IMG]

    Yeah, they are hilarious. It's the younger ones that started it. Only one ended up on the roof, though. I'm glad they didn't all start that. I'd be too worried about hawks or eagles getting them. [​IMG] I just wonder why they forget they can fly when they are in danger??? Crazy goonie birds!! [​IMG]
