Aflac and Gertrude 

Aflac and Gertrude

A fanciful conversation concerning newcomers to the barnyard.

Aflac: “Oh, she’s brought some new faces to the yard, let’s go over and see who they are. … Gertrude – COME ON, you’re always dragging up the rear.” 

Gertrude: “What do you suppose they are? They don’t look like us. They don’t look like the geese either, or the chickens, and they certainly don’t resemble the turkeys. They’re nowhere near as big as them.”



Some of our 4-week-old French guineas.
