Oh Guinea Me

It was a guinea Monday over at our farm. The high pressure and the cooler air got our five guinea worked up and feisty. They attacked the ducks and the chickens and investigated my camera strap while eating breakfast. The horn on their head is very warm to touch. They have excellent vision and can spot predators better than the dog. They are just very vocal about anything and can make loud calls that make your ears hurt. We have them because they are great foragers. They eat ticks and all other things that crawl or fly around them. They will chase down a snake and ride and peck a snapping turtle. They are brave and pushy birds to have around the farm.
