Whilst blogging about my passions I seem to have had a few rants so here is a post dedicated to something I despise with a passion. I promise to be more positive for H!

Guinea fowl are the spawn of satan!

If you're one of those weird nut jobs that likes them I pity you.

My loathing of these hideous creatures stems from our time in Zimbabwe. Harry our landlord kept guinea fowl along with chickens and turkeys, each of which had the ability to be annoying. However, the guinea fowl took the prize for winding me up.

Between our cottage and Harry's house there was a wall and invariably every Saturday two of these brainless creatures would manage to get separated from each other on either side of the wall. Rather than walk the brief 3 or so metres around the wall they would sit there calling out to each other at the top of their lungs for hours on end. To top it off, this was right outside our bedroom window.

Trust me, the guinea fowl will never comprehend the passion with which I despise them!

This post is part of a series in the Blogging From A To Z Challenge, April 2012.


  1. I never had to deal with these birds. I've heard similar complaints about peafowl.

  2. If they couldn't figure out how to walk a few steps around, then you're right, they'll never comprehend the passion with which you despise them! :-)
