Lavender Guinea Fowl

The Lavender Guinea Fowl is one of the more popular guinea breeds be found on farms throughout North America. This guinea breed is similarly colored to the Pearl Guinea, but they are a slightly lighter shade of blue and less gray than the Pearl. The domesticated Guinea originated from the wild Guinea in Western Africa. Guinea Fowl are some of the most useful and hardy domesticated land fowl in the country, and their wide range of utility and low to zero maintenance once mature have helped them become increasingly popular throughout countrysides across North America in recent years.

As Lyme Disease, a tick born illness, has become more and more prevalent in the Eastern United States, many farm owners with livestock and family have turned to Guinea Fowl to help eradicate the danger. Guineas are especially known to immensely enjoy snapping up ticks out of tall grass where they tend to thrive and pose threats to dogs, children, and livestock nearby.

Guinea Fowl are also known for their alert behavior and vocal nature. Guineas are said to be effective at warding off hawks, rats, foxes and snakes with their cry; helping to protect not only themselves, but other chickens, ducks, or geese, on the farm that are prone to attack by predators.

Once raised from young, Guineas will pretty much live wild and roam free once mature, but since they are territorial, they will stay in close proximity to where they have been raised. Guinea Fowl also are an excellent bird to harvest for its meat, tasting almost identical to pheasant. Guinea Fowl meat is known to be extremely tender and lean.

Guniea Keets (Delivered July 13) July 19, 2016
Reviewer: Jeremy Fisk from Clayton, NM United States  
We ordered 15 keets and lost 4 in the first 2.5 days.  I am not ready to blame this on eFowl.  It is the heat of the summer and I suspect that had something to do with it.  I fed them Hi-Pro Poultry starter mash, watered them in plastic 1 gal. feeders and waterers and had pine shavings on the floor of the rubbermaid stock tank.  Temps were in the 100's during the day and 70s at night.  I suspect they overheated, although I had a fan on them.
