If you are looking for a pest controller and something beautiful to look at, guinea fowl is a great option. Being loud and territorial, the guinea fowl makes a good addition to a homestead to reduce insect populations and drive off intruders.
Guinea fowl are seasonal layers, laying approximately 60-100 eggs each season. The eggs are tough and ovoid in shape. Guinea hens can go broody and raise their own young.
Guinea fowl are alert and flighty. They do well in large housing or free range due to their behavior. They get along with other flock members or livestock if raised with them. They do best in groups of their own kind.
Choice of color is not available but we normally get French Guineas, Pearl, Lavender, Black or White.
