    I just picked up some new babies at the poultry swap in Maryland over the weekend.

    They're 5-week-old Guineas. I bought them to help control the ticks and bugs in the yard.

    It's so cute watching them run around because they all flock tightly together.

    They're adorable! I raised an orphaned guineafowl once - he insisted on roosting on the towel rail in the bathroom and sharing my breakfast.

    So sweet! I've never had quineas but DH swears they make good guard dogs. [​IMG]

    Yep! Good guard dogs!

    I heard guineas do get loud when something or someone approaches (or when a leaf falls off a tree).
