What's good for the goose......

is not always good for the gander.
Or what's good for the banty
is not always good for the guinea.

I am sorry but these little boogers are too cute to run off of my front porch!
I think they look like country decor!!
and they don't poop as much as the guineas do on my porch.
All seven guineas get on my covered porch, beside the sliding door
that is next to the kitchen table, every morning.
They yell and chatter and peck on the door for me to come out and play. They continue until I finally run them off with a dish detergent bottle of water.
Of course they poop way to much on that porch.
They will then go around to the front porch but they only stay there for a couple minutes.

I can't find it in my heart to run the banty's off though.
They are way too cute!!
I could just watch them all day long.
Remember I like fowl?

When we were getting our guineas incubated, we did a lot of research (well maybe not enough)
and it was funny to read that they were a bird of such a strict routine. Meaning you could set your watch by where they are at on your place at what time of day cause it would be at the same time each day.
Sure enough. They are on my side porch at 8:30 EVERY morning and then again at 6:30 in the evening. You know what? Come to think of it, I am at that dining room table at those times myself. Do you think they know that? LOL!!!

Wow Kim you are quick! I accidently hit publish before I had put the text in!!

They are Black Rosecombs. We bought the pair last fall at our local Amish community. They are mating now but she isn't laying yet. They say banty's will be as long as a year before they start to lay. She was supposed to be last springs baby, so I hope it isn't long til I have some babies. At least some eggs for my incubator!!

They are just too sweet to have running around!

They are gorgeous! I love seeing my chickens on the porch too. Unfortunately mine do poop way too much!

I have a group of chickens that come up on the back porch of the house to see if the dogs left any dog food every day ... they do leave big piles though! I have another group of chickens that sneak into the milk parlor if the door is left open at all to see if the cats left any of their food. Chickens are fun to watch and have around, but seem to leave their little piles in all the wrong places!

Your bantys are really cute!

Sandra said...

So cute and love to hear them chatter.

Oh, they are so cute! Mine come on our back patio too! When I open the door, they come running from where ever they are scratching about! They are great entertainment!

Thanks ladies they are a lot of fun. I never knew we would like the bantams so much or I would have had them years ago!

The best part is that when the rooster crows he isn't very loud so he doesn't wake me up too early like all the other roosters in the past!!!!
