Morning Breakfast Guests

This morning, I was awoken by my chickens carrying on in a way I'd never heard. Bobby kept nudging me til I got up to see what the commotion was all about. Then before I could get out of bed I heard this blood curdling squawk and was afraid a hawk had gotten one of my hens. I ran to the porch to see what was happening, and not a chicken was in site. They were hiding!
Where I scatter their food, were these two Guinea hens! My girls were terrified! I mean this couple makes a terrible screeching noise! So I ran back in the house and grabbed my camera. I followed them out into the back and starting snapping pictures.

This little bunny came running out of the horse field to investigate. I've never seen Guinea hens around here, so this was a treat! My hens didn't think so, though.

I've never seen them either. I wonder what the hens would have done if they had stayed. Always we think of grabbing our camera, don't we. Such a joy in our lives. Diane

LOL! Wonder where they came from Laurie?

I think Guineas are cute, but apparently your girls don't share that opinion! Bless their hearts. That must have been quite a commotion to attract that bunny. Nice photos, great little story. Never a dull moment, right?

Interesting that your hens were so upset by the "wild ones". You have to wonder what was going on in their minds. Funny that your impulse was to get your camera - that would be mine too!
