No problems keeping warm on this winter’s morning

Beautiful crisp morning today and we found the perfect job to get stuck into: a manure run.

Never fails to make me happy

This is a difficult one to explain but without fail seeing or hearing our Guinea Fowl lifts my spirits.

There is something unique about the Guinea Fowl. They are totally free and yet they know us, trust us and return every night after a day’s foraging. They go where they please. They are not the brightest of birds but they always stick together, never abandoning their own. They can stand up to the fox or an over enthusiastic dog, escaping to the trees only if their raucous message isn’t getting through.

I caught a glimpse of them this morning…
