    Visited a friend that deals in lots of poultry. He had a frizzled guinea. It was pearl in color but the pattern wasnt the same as normal & the feathers were slightly frizzled. Anybody seen one? I didn't offer him anything for it, but once I got home I started thinking maybe I should have bought it.

    I couldn't get a pic of this one, but even from 30 or so ft away I was wondering what was up with the guinea. I think it was an adult, or at least breeding age. DH thinks it is a guinea crossed with a frizzle chicken. I know the current owner was at an amish auction in Kansas last wk so it may have came from there. The feathers were not frizzled as well as a frizzled chicken but it was seriously odd looking.

    Do you think the owner could email you a picture?

    I will double check & see if he still has him this wk. Maybe I can stop by & get a pic. May even need to buy him, but I was trying to get away from pearls!!!!

    The guy who has him turns alot of birds fast, so honeslty not sure if he will have him..... but I will try to find out.
