Guineas are craxy but cool.I just noticed that you identified yourself as a "spinster." heehee I know what you mean but you ain't a Spinster ;)
I would be so pleased to be attacked by our guinea fowl! They now run towards me - screeching to a halt about 3m away. A major advance on this time last year; maybe by the time they are elderly citizens we'll be sitting together enjoying the world!
