Description

Why Own Guineas? Guinea fowl have become very popular because they will quickly, safely rid an area of disease carrying ticks, as well as other insect pests and small rodents. Guineas make great pest exterminators for gardens too. Guinea fowl are the clowns of the poultry world with their white painted faces, red wattles and a horn that sits on top of their heads called a helmet. Their high speed and erratic movements are often very comical and their antics are fun to watch. Besides having a voracious appetite for bugs, guineas also dine on grasses, weeds and their seeds. They are carnivores and love to eat small rodents and reptiles. Guinea fowl also make a superb alarm system. They will make quite the noisy raucous whenever any change occurs in their environment. They hate snakes and they will warn off and sometimes even kill any snakes they come across.
