One of the funniest species of domestic bird on the planet has to be Guinea Fowl. I encountered some on a farm I surveyed.
I should have made a video, with sound. They make a noise like a thousand squeaky gates and run around bobbing their heads as if they can't decide whether you are a threat or a possible source of food.
Here's a plus. I just learned they eat ticks. Lots of ticks.
Not the first time I've seen them, but I don't see them often enough to get used to.
By the way, some blog I used to read regularly talked about getting Sebastopol geese- the ones with the fancy feathers. I saw one of those too! If you are still stopping by here, remind me who you are and leave a link.
