Four Guineas in November

If there's one thing guineas hate (yet don't stand and yell about as they do everything else that irks them..) It's cold, rainy weather! So they've taken to perching on the gate like a bunch of guinea-buzzards. Here are four of the six we have left from our first experience with raising them from day old keets. What an adventure THAT was.

We have guineas for their tick-eating and snake-discouraging behavior. The tick-eating is what makes them popular. They tend to run off snakes just because guineas are LOUD and will stand in a group and yell at any interloper into their territory -- snakes, garden hoses, blowing leaves, etc.

As for their temperament, well thanks another story to come...
