Martini...thank you so very much....I was very surprised that these guinea fowl didn't make a bigger noise than they did...they casually clucked a few times and slowly meandered off the road.........

Cooler..thank you so very much for your compliment....these are Guinea Fowl, originally from Ghana in Africa but have been domesticated and you can see them in parts of Europe and the America's....they mate for life and really eat ticks, lice and bugs.....fascinating to watch........

Glenn...laughing...I've never owned Guinea Fowl but I worked for a farmer who raised them to control ticks and bugs....they can be quite noisy at times......

Heather...thank you so very much.....I was very surprised that these Guinea Fowl didn't make more of a racket....they normally screech but they just clucked and walked into the field...........
