Fox Cities Magazine Photo Winners!

Mulberry Lane Farm is proud to announce that two of our guest have won for their photo entry in the 2011 Fox Cities Magazine Photo Contest.

Grand Prize Winner!

Peter De Schmidt of Fond du lac, took this photo of the farm's Corn Crib during a June visit.  Peter's photo took GRAND PRIZE honors!  We agree with the Fox Cities Magazine.  It's a beautiful photo!


Amy Phillips of Oshkosh took this photo while on a school field trip with her daughter.  After the students left the Sow Barn, Amy said she looked back to see the piglet's "calling her for her attention."  She couldn't resist the photo opportunity.  Amy took 2nd place in the "Things" category.

Congratulations to Peter and Amy for sharing your beautiful photos with us. Mulberry Lane Farm is honored to be the subject of your photos.

Nesting Guinea Hen

Farmer Pat saw that the guinea hens have found a safe haven on the farm in The Old Wood Shed.  They apparently felt so safe they laid more eggs than they can cover!

Actually, to see this many eggs isn't unusual. The guinea hens like to lay eggs in secluded nests on the ground.  They will lay an egg a day.  Once there is a clutch of 20-30 eggs the guinea will stay on the nest.   The eggs take approximately 28 days to hatch. Guinea hens will often share nests as they have here at the farm.

The baby guinea fowl are called keets.  The male guinea fowl is called guinea cocks.  It'll be so cute to see the guinea keets following mom in less than a month.  Happy hatching little ones!
