Ugliest bird ever invades the country girl experiment

For those of you who are new to me, let me back -track for a sentence or two and let you know that I was not born to this country life- I married into it. I moved into the deserts of New Mexico, away from Starbucks, pavement,  street lights and motor cycle cops to a 20 acre parcel that is filled with cows, horses, goats, chickens and now guineas.   Cowboy and his hobbies. I’m not knocking it, but I would like to say that my hobbies- my art- can be stored in a box. His is alive. His poops. His makes noise.

Here is the latest installment at the Metcalf Ranch-a- lette.guinea1  This is how it starts.. 14 of them. Ok kinda cute…. So I did a little supportive research.  And what I found is  more than I can  bare.. They are ugly when they are grown. Not just a little ugly. Ugly like horror film ugly.  It is like a cross between a turkey, a big chicken and a vulture.
