I've got Guinea feathers!!

Eve at Sunny Side Up was kind of enough to send some of her Guinea feathers! If you haven't seen her Guineas, I suggest you check them out. Especially the post with them knocking on her door! They are hilarious and beautiful! Thank you Eve for these feathers - I have put them in a little vase and they remind me of your kindness and your wonderful Guineas!

Marvin the cat went into ecstasy when I let him sniff one of these feathers.


A beautiful photo card from Eve!

Aren't they beautiful?


"Please, please invite the Guineas over Shelley! I promise to be good!"

My parents always had Guinea's when I was growing up. They are the coolest birds. My Mom loved them because they didn't scratch her gardens up the way the chickens did. And they are get watch dogs too. They clucked away when someone pulled in the drive.

Your sweet cats face is priceless with that guinea feather! What a nice surprise to get in the mail.

Guineas are such amazing birds. I love their round, plump bodies and lovely feathers.

My dad-in-law used to keep guinea fowls ( a while back). they're very raucous and were great at keeping snakes away. The guinea fowls attacked snakes and always won.

Jayne said...

Oh, Marvin can dream.... :c)
Those feathers are beautiful.

Leedra said...

The cat really wants to get to those guineas. So nice of Eve.

Those are very pretty feathers!
(My kitty reacts the same way with some pheasant tail feathers we've saved--they're now sitting up on a high shelf)

Lucky Marvin!!:) I sometimes find wild turkey feathers while I'm out walking, and bring them home for our felines, who promptly go nuts.

Awe, Marvin is adorable. Your bird pictures are amazing!
