All guineas originally came from Africa and have always been prized for their all-dark, gamey tasting meat. In many of
the world’s top restaurants guinea is still found on the menu and demands a very high price. Guineas are very easy
to raise. Once you get them started, they live and grow on bugs, insects and weed seeds. They newly hatched young are called
keats and are very active from the start. Once guineas are grown they will range throughout your farmstead foraging for good
and serving as you personal watchdogs by calling: Buckwheat! Buckwheat! to all strangers that pull into your yard. Many of
our customers report the addition of guineas to their homestead has greatly reduced the number of ticks, particularly the
dreaded deer tick. Until 12 weeks of age, different colors of guineas will look similar and be difficult to distinguish.
