LET’S START WITH A FEW FACTS ABOUT GUINEA FOWL IN GENERAL FOR THOSE NOT FAMILIAR WITH GUINEA FOWL. CLICK HERE OR  CLICK HERE.

IF YOU CHECKED OUT THE LINKS, YOU SAW GUINEA FOWL FEED MAINLY ON BUGS WHICH IS THE MAIN REASON MOST PEOPLE WANT THEM…PEST CONTROL!!!

ONE OF THEIR FAVORITE BUGS IS THE TICK!!! THEY ARE GREAT ORGANIC PESTICIDE FOR GARDENS TOO, BECAUSE THEY ALSO LOVE TO EAT BEATLES OF ALL KINDS, INCUDING JAPANESE BEATLES!!! 

GUINEA FOWL
OVER THE YEARS BOOTLEGGERS AND MOONSHINERS USED GUINEA FOWL AS WATCHDOGS BECAUSE THEY WERE SO DEPENDABLE!!!

THE OTHER REASON MANY PEOPLE WANT THEM IS HOME SECUTIRY! I HAVE A 50-60% HEARING LOSS SO MY GUINEA FOWL ALERT ME TO PREDITORS, STRANGERS OR ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY.

MY GRANDPA USE TO SAY “IF YOU FIND A HOUSE WITH A YARD FULL OF GUINEAS…YOU JUST FOUND THE LOCAL BOOTLEGGER” AND THEY TRULY ARE THAT GOOD OF A WATCHDOG. I JUST NEED THEM BECAUSE OF MY HEARING…SORRY BUT I AIN’T GOT NO LIQUOR!

I HEAR PEOPLE SAYING THEY DON’T WANT GUINEAS…THEY MAKE TOO MUCH NOISE! THAT REALLY ISN’T TRUE, FACT IS, IF THERE IS NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY YOU NEVER HEAR ANYTHING FROM GUINEA FOWL…THEY ARE AS QUIET AS A MOUSE AND I HAVE ABOUT A HUNDRED OR SO.

THE NEXT BEST THING ABOUT GUINEAS IS…THEY KILL SNAKES OR AT LEAST PECK THEM TILL THEY RUN TRYING TO GET AWAY! GUINEAS TAKE TURNS RUNNING IN AND PECKING AT THE SNAKE TILL THEY KILL IT OR IT ESCAPES.

AS I MENTIONED EARLIER GUINEA FOWL ARE SEASONAL LAYERS. THEY LAY A SMALL EGG WITH A LARGE YOLK COMPARED TO A CHICKEN. THE EGGS ARE DELICIOUS ANY WAY YOU COOK THEM.

WE LIKE THEM FOR PICKLED EGGS BECAUSE OF THE SMALLER SIZE.  I BOIL THEM AND PUT THEM IN HALF VINIGAR HALF TEXAS PETE. MY WIFE USES BEET JUICE AND SPICES. I LIKE HOT PICKLED EGGS. SHE DOESN’T LIKE PICKLED EGGS BUT MAKES THEM OCCASIONALLY FOR OTHERS.

GUINEA FOWL MEAT IS DELICIOUS
