Worthy Watchdogs

These 'Ghosts' free range on a homestead in our area.
 Guinea fowl are valued as one of the best exterminators of pest insects, making them a compliment to a backyard garden.

Growing up they would come from the neighboring farm
and station themselves under our spruce trees
and start 'talking'.
 
My little brother was afraid of them and called them  'ghosts'.

  3. They tend to be pretty noisy, though...no wonder your brother was afraid of them. :-) Great photos of your exterminators!
