Fast Forward to Spring

The Parasite Control Department

Affectionately called the three stooges, these three Guinea Hens (these two are actually not ours, ours would not sit still long enough for us to take their picture, but we will pretend they did) are supposed to keep the bug, especially tick population under control.
