Jalapeño and Serrano Guineas

Meet Jalapeno

Guineas are good for tick and bug control.  They roam all around the farm eating all kinds of bugs.  If they roost near the driveway, 

Some people find they are good watchdogs, and will make a fuss when anyone drives in.

This family of insect and seed-eating, ground-nesting birds resemble partridge , but with featherless heads, though both members of the genus Guttera have a distinctive black crest, and the Vulturous Guinea fowl has a downy brown patch on the nape. Most species of guinea fowl have a dark grey or blackish plumage with dense white spots.
Meet Serrono

This is what they'll look like full grown.  

How adorable are they, better than spending money on bug spray!!!  At my local feed store they cost me $4.00 each.  I see more Guineas on the farm.
