If you read my post that mentioned ticks the other day, you may have noticed my girlfriend Tracey's comment saying I need a guinea hen.
Know what that is?
I'm betting most of you don't, so I thought I'd post a picture for you.
I took that a couple of years ago when Tracey had a small flock of guineas. She got them specifically because they are known to eat ticks. When she and her Hubby moved into their newly built house situated in the middle of what once was a large, grassy field, she said the ticks were so bad you'd see them crawling up the windows and around inside the house.
But then she got the guinea hens who quickly got the tick population under control.
They are goofy looking things, but I bet you can't help but smile at their beautiful weirdness.
