>I know that some babies are prettier than others

and sometimes the ones that start out the plainest turn out to be be absolute beauties

but at the moment, try as I might, I am really struggling to find anything positive* to say about the two newest members of my family

meet Fred and Ethel

* they do have rather beautiful spotty feathers

For the record, Fred and Ethel will only be living in this small cage [ which is really a repurposed humane fox trap] for a few weeks until they get acclimatised. After that they will be free range Guinea Fowl and will apparently roost in the trees at night out of reach of foxes.
Guinea Fowl are generally considered by them-as-should-know to be Mother Nature’s best snake alarms … a skill I would love to think will never need to be tested … and I’ve been waiting about three years for this pair.
