Found wandering on a road in Constantia this morning, this little guy:
See how God favours him with a sunbeam?
He’s a baby guineafowl. Yep, they really are the inverse version of the ugly duckling, aren’t they?
After a few calls around vets and rescue centres, we finally found someone who looks after the birds in the aviary at a local garden centre to take him in.
He was very weak and I’d suggest that his chances of survival are less than 50:50. But to be fair, his chances of survival while stumbling around in the middle of Brommersvlei Road were far lower.
Good deed done. Thoughts, prayers and pledges of cold, hard cash to the usual email address. Thanks.
