    My grandma always had a flock of guinea hens. We ate their eggs, but I didn't try to taste them because they were strong to me. I don't remember her doing anything with the feathers. But to tell the truth I never remember seeing a pair of earings on grandma. Thank you for your talent in my contest, it was better because of your poem.
