OUT OF THE BOX


Today the Guinea Fowl keets (The Frankies) are out of the box completely under their adoptive mother's care.

Aren't they just the cutest little things?


Here is what they will be when they grow up. I've been told they are a reverse of the Ugly Duckling. I happen to think Guinea Fowl are pretty.

  1. okay I'm a dumb old city boy so explain. Are the offspring of guinea fowl called Keets, or Frankies---I don't want to go around to cocktail parties telling stories and sound ignorant, so need the above clarification.

  2. Guinea Fowl babies are called keets. Our keets were born on my cousin Frankie's birthday so they are named The Frankies. I'm pretty sure the cocktail party goers won't be interested.

  5. Now, now JeanMac, be nice. Milton is a pretty boy. (We think he's a he but Guinea Fowl are very difficult to sex). Monica, he is our only adult Guinea. I love his face too and I love the feather color and pattern on Guineas.

  7. They are truly unique! We used to live near a farm and the Guinea Hens would wander around in our back yard and make funny noises, as I remember. Hummmm?

  8. I think they're beautiful!

    Thanks for the visit; yes, the living statues are real people. I saw similar ones in Florence and Rome.

  10. Cute when they are little, and kind of ugly-cute when they are big.
