    Yep. Domestic birds. Someone is missing their Guineas. Noisy as hell. Will remove ALL ticks from an area. Predators show up, you will know it.

    If I remember right, those chickens lay blue eggs. Oops, never mind. I think they lay brown eggs.

    Those birds make great "watchdogs" and a covey will alert you by making lotsa noise, I hear they are great eating too!

    Guinea hens are bug eating machines. We had them in rural WV when i was growing up: So did some of the neighbors. Those birds would travel for a few miles: They roosted in trees, on top of haystacks or the tops of a buildings at night.

    You are thinking of ameraucana chickens, that lay blue eggs. There are giant chickens that lay pink eggs. I am not a chicken person but a lot of my neighbors have chickens. From listening to their conversations and the love of fresh eggs I know more about chickens than I care to know.
