Guinea fowl for feast or farm protection..... Updated 11/15/17
These birds are either generally free ranged for tick control, amusement, or farm protection. The latter being due to their unique, rather raucus alarm call upon the arrival of hawks, other predators, or strangers.
On the Table: Pasturing is not a simple task as, unlike chickens and other domesticated poultry, guinea fowl are not domesticated. They can be trained with much attention, and will tolerate close proximity within limits. It takes a special system to raise these birds on grass where they can grow well, be healthy and facilitate capture for processing. But the proof is in the flavor, and they are soooo delicious! A darker meat, they are in the "game" category of meats.
Fresh frozen guinea - $7.75 per pound, average 3 lbs.

We need to get a video of our birds grazing! Here are some at another farm, but you can see how they are eating almost constantly. Because they work in a group, they pretty much "sweep" your area of ticks and other bugs.
