Last week I was admiring my baby guineas and my two baby Marans when I realized, there was only ONE baby Maran in the brooder. Then it dawned on me that I used to have WAY more white guineas. At first I thought that they had flown the coop. But then I realized that one of the baby baby guineas was missing. There was no way it could have gotten out. Jon and I talked and decided that most likely when the kids were taking the 4 wheeler out, the cat was getting in and snatching a snack. We were still left uneasy with the whole situation though. Our babies were vulnerable.
I headed off to Dallas yesterday leaving Jon in charge of the daily workings of the farm. I was sound asleep last night when my phone started ringing at about midnight. It was Jon's ring tone and I was terrified at what it might be. I answered and he says, "Check your email right now!". Still a little groggy and confused I hung up and looked at my email. This is the picture he sent me.
Hopefully this was the only snake visiting our buffet.
