I guess I should begin by introducing myself.  I am known around here as
GRANDMA
I had a previous page similar to this one on another server and for some reason it has been removed.
It was my first attempt at building a page on the web, and I have since learned a bit about graphics and other things I needed to know about it.  In any case, please bear with me as I try to make this
site interesting.

I have several birds of different kinds that I raise (and sell a few now and then), but they are mostly my feathered friends.
They are good for me since they keep me active by taking care of them.  They are excellent therapy, both mentally and physically, since I must see to their needs on a daily basis. 
I have 125 adult guineas right now, and sold several dozen babies this past summer.  They  are the largest portion of my birds, and their sales help feed the other friends in the yard.
My guineas are of several colors, and are very entertaining as they run around the yard doing
their assigned job of keeping the bug population to a minimum . 
They are like children at times, each one wanting what the other one has, and if one finds a very
tasty morsel, the others will chase it for hours over our four acres to get it away from the finder.
All in all, they are very,noisily busy from sunup until sundown.

Along about sundown, or a little later we have to watch out for these very "stinky" visitors.  They like to steal eggs and are not above swiping a baby or two for dinner.
I found that if I keep a cloth soaked in perfume hanging near the openings in the pens,
they are not so bothersome.  I guess they object to the pleasant smell of perfume or the flutter
of the cloth in the breeze or both!
Varmint that swipes guinea eggs!
