For at least three years now, we've had a single lonely Guinea hen roaming the neighborhood searching for insects and such. He (or she) has survived the cold winters, alone, and the hot summers, alone. And we've always felt kinda sorry for the poor old thing. Today, the ugliest bird ever created, was proud as a beautiful peacock, as he (or she) showed 24 young Guinea hens "the ropes." The old bird walked them all around the perimeters of our home, looking in the windows and strolling across the driveway. Why do we like these birds so much? Because they eat BUGS! Including spiders, ticks, ants, and slugs. Better in the Guinea hens than on our dog and plants. Hooray for the Guinea hens - we're glad to have 'em!
