Guinea fowl

Guinea Fowl have been kept in captivity and used by man for many years. The ancient Romans considered the meat and eggs a delicacy. Large numbers are still farmed and consumed in Europe and elsewhere.

They are valued as one of the best exterminators of pests and insects, making them a complement to any Vineyard or organic farming venture. They are the ultimate organic farmer's weapon against bugs and weeds, plus provide excellent entertainment.

Since one of the main sources of food for guinea fowl is insects, they have gained popularity for use in reducing insect populations in vineyards, gardens and orchards.

From dawn to dusk they will scour your property for beetles, spiders, ticks, wasps, and ants in fact any insect that gets in their way, they are relentless in their pursuit. Guinea fowl do all this without damaging crops. They are tick-eating machines and it is said that they are very efficient at keeping wasp numbers low.

They free-range and spend most of their days foraging. They work as a team, marching chest to chest and devouring anything they startle as they move through the grass. When they discover a special treat, they close ranks, circle their prey, and move in for the feast. All the while, they keep up a steady stream of whistles, chirps, and clicks, a sort of running commentary on the day's hunt.

They will return to their base at night and naturally roost in trees if left without a shelter to sleep in. A handful of wheat or poultry pellets at night is all they need. They live quite happily with other birds including domestic poultry.

Guinea fowl are very suitable for release in game areas and are hunted extensively in Africa, their native country.
