The oddest watch birds ever...

My mother loved these odd little birds and loved their strange noises and so we ended up buying 5 or 6 of them. If you keep them in an enclosed space for a week or so they will realize that you are dumb enough to keep feeding them and they will hang around.
They were a lot of fun to watch and although we did provide them with feed corn they were great at eating the insects and ants that were on the ground.
The funniest thing was that they would get very protective over our house and area and they would squawk at anyone who came near - whether it was a neighbor, the UPS man or a visitor. We always knew when someone was coming because no one passes by Guinea Hens - Guinea Fowl - without them letting you know.
Lots of fun to have especially for little kids.
