I'm a bit surprised that none of you bothered to tell me that Guinea Fowl chicks are absolutely bdooly nuts and that they'd be running around at 100mph within and hour of hatching. They're like grease lightening. I've definitely got to distinct colours and I ended up with seven in total hatching overnight.

I am patiently waiting until Bodger hears them Screeching !
Outside my place a JCB driver jumped out of his cab to look at the engine to see which part was about to blow - waterpump or alternator  etc only to sheepishly realise it was my trio of Guinea Fowl.
