Guineas on parade

Brought 10 half-grown guineas home weekend before last. They're very sweet, but not exactly attractive. And they eat like pigs. We're keeping them in the old guinea/rabbit pen for a while before integrating them into the flock.

Monday I took them for their first outing into the garden.

First, we had to find the garden.

They had a blast, skulking through the beds and pecking at mulch.

The youngest ones still have their baby stripes. And the older ones have touches of blue in their clown makeup. No bony hats yet – just bumps.

Then they had a big dinner and went to bed.
