Product Description

Available as Straight Run only (unsexed)

Guinea fowl are truly beautiful birds. Most, including the white, have at least a few spots, appearing more like tiny squares than dots. These unusual feathers, especially those of the pearl guinea fowl, are often used in hats and for crafts such as Dream Catchers and decorative gourds. I have also used them in the artistic design section of the local flower show in arrangements. The entertainment guineas provide is reason enough to own a few. They are quite humorous to watch as they dart across the yard like little roadrunners. Guineas are often referred to as the farmer’s watchdog. When on free-range, they come to know just who does and does not belong on your property. The guinea fowl is the most active gardener on the farm. Continuously on the move, they pick up bugs and weed seeds with nearly every step they take. They will walk right through flowerbeds picking bugs off the plants as they go along, without harming a single tender leaf! Unlike chickens, guineas do not scratch; therefore do not harm delicate plants or flowers in gardens. Guinea eggs can be eaten just like chicken eggs and should be collected daily for food consumption. Mail order is the easiest way to find a particular color of guinea. Mail order is also the easiest way to receive the keets at a time most convenient for the homeowner to care for them.
