Looks like a spotty turkey
My daughter has Guineas on her farm in VA. The feather they shed are so pretty.
Thanks, Gordon, I'll look into it
These are Guineafowl. There are several species of these birds and I don't know for sure which one this is. Since they are originally from Africa, these are likely domesticated Guineafowl. Many domestic varieties are descended from Helmeted Guineafowl. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guineafowl
