Guinea Fowl for Sale
Guinea fowl for sale are a unique kind of poultry. While the guinea meat and eggs are considered a delicacy at many expensive restaurants, they are a common addition to any pasture or free range poultry flock. This is because guinea fowl are largely self sufficient. They are great at foraging and controlling pests like ticks, mice, and even snakes! Whether you want guinea keets (that is what they call the chicks) for meat or eggs, they can make an excellent addition to your flock.
How much do guinea fowl chicks cost?
Guinea fowl chicks (better known as keets) are widely available at farms and hatcheries across the country. Generally, they will cost about $4 – $8 for the common colors like pearl, royal purple, and white guineas. There are much rarer breeds that have an exotic look, which can cost $20+ per keet as well, but these are not available commonly from farms and hatcheries.
How loud are guinea fowl?
Guinea fowl are very loud, and very vocal. They act some what as an alarm system for the flock, so they do not make good urban backyard pets. However, if you have the space (or very understanding neighbors), guineas are a great addition. Learn more about why people raise guineas here.
