Thursday morning, 5:30...
the phone rings.
The local Post Office called to say there was a special delivery to be picked up.
So, I hopped in the car and headed off to town.
I was greeted at the Post Office door....
Back in the car with my "special package" on the front seat.
No need to turn on the radio...
as the "package" serenaded me.
Once home, I unpacked my new babies...
30 newly hatched guinea keets!
I gently lifted each chick out of the box and introduced them to their new house,
outfitted with heat lamps.
Each chick was shown the water and food.
By the end of the day, and after several naps,
my new little fuzz balls were exploring the whole brooder house...
"cheeping" at the top of their lungs.
Aren't they the sweetest?
These 30 guineas will eventually patrol the farm in search of ticks and other pesky insects.
They will be great fun to watch grow!
Yesterday afternoon I finished the new rock garden....
It's filled with mostly perennials,
but I added a few annuals just for immediate color.
The tree is a weeping Japanese maple.
This garden gives me yet another thing to watch grow and change over the coming years!
Have a wonderful weekend.
We are supposed to get some rain...
which would give us a break from watering!
