My favorite rooster. He’s gentle and mild, but he likes his high wire.
If you haven’t heard of Philippe Petit, who threw a wire between the World Trade Centers the moment they were constructed and tightrope walked between them (eat your heart out, Blondin), you’re missing out.
The documentary with the original characters is called Man on Wire (excellent!), and the Hollywood version, The Walk, stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Petit and is almost entirely truthful (also excellent! and in 3D!). Both films will incite gasping, awe, and breath-holding.
He tightrope walked (and more) between the World Trade Centers!
The guineas love perching in the walnut tree. There was this one night when they all flew off the greenhouse, after dark ,and tried to land in the top branches of the walnut tree, and some were more successful than others, some falling all the way to the ground, bouncing off branches the whole way. But usually, they like the long low branches over the feeder and the coop.
