I was introduced to Guineas when I moved to my current house 5 years ago.My neighbor has about20 or so free ranging guineas. I can distinctly remember telling my husband" my gosh those are ugly birds, why would someone want a bird that looks like that" Well i guess now i can eat my words as i now have 11 of these beautiful intelligent creatures.They are so much fun to watch.They remind me of a school of fish as they move around the yard as one unit. The babies started so small and fuzzy that they would have vied any baby chick for cuteness. Their dad Gru used to come to my porch window and "knock"" when he wanted a treat. Yesterday I thought I heard a noise and went outside to find several of Gru's offspring tapping on the glass waiting for a treat. History repeating itself I guess.. Gru last summer Gru junior a month and a half ago.
