Ear drums

Wasn’t that loud? I mean all that noise because a leaf dropped, a chicken sneezed or Ronnie Rooster did a tiny doodle-doo.

The funniest thing is, if you replay this to the Guineas, they get louder….if that’s possible. They jump like jump jets , a vertical take off but with a very bumpy, ungainly landing. Where one goes, they all go. But then who do you follow?Confusing. So they scream. It resolves all problems. Then the head bird starts to sing. The others instantly stop screaming and all threats have gone. En-mass they wander off to nibble another nettle.

    1. I never ever thought about having these guys but so glad I did. And boy are they good at letting you know if anything changes round the house. Lots of squabbling at bed time but luckily the chickens seem oblivious to all the noise.
