Green Acres

Today I learned that someone near us has a flock of Guinea fowl that he lets run around, “free range ” – in the middle of the road, in this case. I had to herd them off to the side with my car. Cause that’s country livin.

I didn’t know what they were. Looked like fat chickens with puffin heads.

    Yes, agreed w/HinTN. They will help with insect management–so do opossums and wild turkeys (the former consume as many as 5,000 ticks in a season). I wouldn’t have realized they were guinea hens from the image–the ones I’ve seen were all black and white speckled. The ones that look grey to me might be speckled and I just can’t tell, though.
