Tick Eradication ~ Our Guinea Fowl are utilized for their wonderful and extremely efficient tick eradication abilities.Extremely effiecient foragers, I'd swear they eat a bug or two with every step they take. Our flock has a set daily routine during which they scour a particular route every day for food. Almost like clockwork, quite often I will find them at the same place at the same time every day. We have found our problem with ticks on our dog, other livestock, and us, to be practically eliminated in the areas these birds patrol. We highly recommend them.
On the Dinner Table ~ Additionally, we have heard they are delicious as a meal. Though we have not yet eaten any ourselves, we have been approached by a restaurant to raise several batches this summer. We look forward to experimenting with this new enterprise. For information on purchasing guinea fowl for roasting, see our Products page.
