    Yesterday I got a neat picture of one of my guineas. This is One Toe and he was busy taking a dirt bath with I caught this head shot. I just wish I had his eye color...LOL! [​IMG] He is 3 1/2 months old now.

    Yes, great! He has such character. I don't know why people say guineas are ugly. [​IMG]

    are they turkey? not to ask a dumb question... i've seen them mentioned on BYC and never really known what they are I guess. I'd like to get more birds.... perhaps these fellas......?

    Quote:They're a separate creature all together. They are African natives, although they have a long history of domestication. Here's a link for their entry on Wikipedia -

    They're
    pretty entertaining to watch. Noisier and, in my experience, messier than chickens and a little harder to train to their coop, they are excellent bug predators.

    Hope that helps! [​IMG]
