thanks Ricky Bobby, i have only seen photos of the Vulturines before. they look like guineas dressed in drag.
but when they move, they really do look like guineafowl.

Yes they are lovely birds, no Vulturines in Australia though. My understanding is that we only have the helmeted Guinea fowl in Pearl, Lavender and Cinnamon here and the Cinnamon are pretty hard to find.

I have been looking for cinnamons for years now, they are around but people dont like parting with them..

Have seen some US sites where people cross the Vulturines and Helmeted to make more money as the Vulturines are rarer and not as hardy.
