#VIDEO Live Guniea Fowl

Guinea Fowl
It seemed cool to video tape these fowl that are now running loose around the farm.  For about a year they were penned up, there were about eight of them, Barry let four loose, only to have mysteriously disappeared.  The last four Barry waited almost a year before letting them out, they were afraid to come out.  He left the opened the door but they just stayed in the coop, next he propped the coop door open with a stick, it took two days before the Gunieas came out. Now the Guineas, most of the time, stay near the area of the coop area.  Unless you try to record them, than they will run off a little ways.

As the warm weather progresses, these ugly birds are probably going to reproduce to the point that we will have to shoot them.  I'm not sure what they are for, except to look at.  One idea I had was to eat them, since they eat the same things chickens eat, grass, bugs and feed.

Anyways, here is my home video of them, wish it could have been a closer shot but they would not let me get to near as you can see.
