Guinea fowl, South Whilborough
Guinea fowl, South Whilborough
Inane but appealing, and very noisy. Apparently, they "like to flock together and hang about in a group ... like to chase each other about - one will be the chaser and when the chased guinea fowl is caught, they then turn around and reverse their roles" LinkExternal link . "Guinea Fowl are voracious consumers of insects and have a particular fondness for ticks" LinkExternal link and they have therefore been used to control Lyme disease, so they are the rambler's friend. Also good roast.
