Well some of the guineas finally got close enough for me to get some pictures of them. They’re all feathered out now and I love how they have polka dots but I don’t love how they always look at you like they wanna murder you 😳

I want guineas at some point in my life.

@calicclemon They are loud and crazy wild but have a routine with the chickens and taste great so I would recommend them🤷🏼♀️

Are guineas never tame? They’re beautiful but everyone always says they’re pretty wild. Do you eat the eggs or anything?

They totally do! 😂🤣

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times; guineas exist solely on hate, rage and screaming to the tune of a rusty swing set in a hurricane! They’re great fun 😂
@thekeetlifefarm Yes! That is an absolutely perfect description of them! They sound like tornado sirens 😂 BUT! They actually like like 6 inches from me so that’s a win!
@brandilebaron This is my first round of actually raising them and even when they were tiny babies they hated being held and ran away and they do not like you to get close to them. They’ll get within a foot of me if I’m quiet and sitting but otherwise keep their distance. I’m hoping to get eggs from them soon and I plan on hatching some from these to to put in the freezer!
@kristinegoesfarming I touched Squeak while she was roosting the other week and she didn’t have a panic attack. I considered that incredible progress 😂
@thekeetlifefarm Wow, guinea whisperer over here! Teach me your ways master 😂😂

Our teenager guineas were all rough, but now that everyone is 1 and 2 years old there is no drama and little ceaseless screaming. They do become chill(er).

Freakiest birds ever!
@slowfarmnc I’m glad to hear they might grow out of it. I remember my Gram’s neighbor had them when I was a kid and that group was always crazy
@rogerscreekfarm Definitely not the cutest yard birds!
@kristinegoesfarming interesting! They’re very pretty anyways.
@brandilebaron Yes! I love collecting their feathers from around the yard

Guineas are great for the farm, but are some of the craziest stupidest birds you'll ever have!
@loveofapig It’s like they’re made of pure anger and anxiety. They can’t decide which one they want to be more lol

I have some babies now. I’m a little nervous about how they will behave 🤣🤣
@two_acre_farm I really thought I could tame them. Deep down in my heart I thought mine would be different. They weren’t 😂😂🤷🏼♀️
