Even though I only count 13 in this picture, we counted a total of 14 keets on Friday afternoon, which puts Gladys on par with Octomom.

We don’t know that she’s the same Gladys that got broody in our barn last fall, but this time, she hatched her babies.

I tend to think this is the same Gladys. She’s very attentive to her babies.

And protective. Just as she was to her nest.

Guinea keets are incredibly cute.

Gladys spent Friday night here with her babies. On Saturday, she returned to Mr. Gladys and the rest of her guinea family in our neighbor’s pasture.

Take good care of those babies, Gladys. We’re glad you were here.  ♥
