Guinea Fowl (numida meleagris)

A bad day, raining, though I couldn't go out because the plumber was still here.

    2. Thanks but no thanks. Just send it in a box. Feathers on. I do eat a lot of fungi but not compressed Quorn. Who knows where it has been or what it is.

  9. Gorgeous plumage. I hope the plumber is finished soon. Very soon. And you can have your blissful ablutions without going out in the rain.
    Perhaps Adrian would like a tofu-delope?

  11. I find them very beautiful, dressed in their polka-dot suits/gowns. It is raining heavily today here in Vancouver as well. All the better for blog reading :)

  21. Delightful photos of the guinea fowl. They have such beautiful feathers, and colorful faces. They manage to look sophisticated comical at the same time, with the horns on their heads almost like a bun. I hope you got your plumbing all repaired, that is such a pain.
