These birds? Never seen them before, everyone I know has a different opinion.
They are Guinea hens
those are guinea fowl. lots of people keep them for breeding and raising on farms and such.
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.
lol i had to look up how to spell it right
Thanks for the quick replies! They were in the road and wouldn't get out of the way. Never seen them before, cool looking birds.
Ya there great for tics an whatnot in the yard
And Yes, they taste just like chicken!!!
There'd be a bird missing when I brought the flock back. Damm coyotes must have got one..
Yep them are Guinea's, we had them when I was a kid, meanest damn bird in the barn yard, especially a old hen sitting a clutch.................
Looks like chicken dinner!!
If I remember right, those chickens lay blue eggs. Oops, never mind. I think they lay brown eggs.
Winds, its the Robins that have the blue eggs!
They lay a speckled egg...............
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.
''guinnies '' are the most economical watchdog one can own ....dont eat much and wont leave a land mine in the yard
