Doris Griffin’s barnyard has been active this week. A batch of 14 guineas hatched out and Doris has taken them into her porch since the mamma guinea doesn’t take very good care of her babies. She takes them for a walk and if any of them get lost, she just keeps going.

The fox was back looking for a free chicken dinner, but the guineas ganged up on him and had him fenced in. He managed to sneak away, but went to the other side of the barn and was hiding there. He probably thought he ‘d hang around and when the guineas thought he was gone, he would grab some lunch. When the guineas have something cornered, they don’t back down.

Doris went carving with the Lake Region carvers at the park in New Rockford on Saturday.

Saturday was the first Farmer’s Market in Sheyenne and when Doris stopped, she found there were lots of interesting and good things to eat.
