We ran an errand and were entertained by the neighbors Guinea Fowl. They were languishing by the edge of the road so Chance got a good look at them. They talked to him and he talked right back to them.
Pretty little tick and bug eaters.
I think these are called Helmeted Guinea Fowl. It has a “thingy” on his/her head.
We had a long discussion “Would Chance eat baby fowl? Would they imprint on him and follow him around? Would it give him a job? They would eat ticks and bugs. We have an old wagon on a lawn mower chassis…could it be a movable coop?”
My Maternal Grandfather had Guineafowl, they followed him around and talked to him as he did his chores…I can still see him walking from the hen house to the grainery and then the pump house with the Guineas following him.
