Default How Wild Is This??

These seem to be running around all over where I live, in fields and in the woods. I know they are domestic birds, and they sure are Aesthetically Challenged, but with lots of detail for your photographic pleasure!

I believe that is a Guinea hen. Don't know much about them, though, except they make a lot of noise.

That's quite an interesting coat that bird has on.

Nice clear shot of this unusual fowl. A lot of vignerons here use them to keep pests out of the grapes. I understand they also make great watchdogs.

How wild is this too — lightly wriggle your finger on the mouse scroll button and the coat shimmers.
Excellent detail.
